Well, this is fun.  >:(

This person "can't find" my font, but links to it on Shutterstock. And then you have people suggesting he just trace it. Lovely.

Actually, the OP in the feed found the file on my site and seems willing to pay for it there, though hasn't bought it yet. We'll see what happens. At least he/she was willing to look for a place to purchase it.

/OT - that's an interesting font. And I can see the design logic behind most of the letters. Some of them look great. But how did you get to the G ?

ETA: - what I mean is - I don't get the G.

yes, how ironic one of the comments "as a poor student i can't afford..."
you should reply there to say u r the owner creator of the font and u earn 32,33,35 cts (what u earn)
for each download. and say if every "poor student" steals your work, u too will be or is still "poor".

I replied and the guy who suggested stealing it argued that I don't really own the copyright. Amazing.

The "G" I got from adding the minimal amount I could to the "C." I decided not to add the descender or to bring up the open side further.

BAM!  End of discussion.  Nice job on educating the brats, Shelma!

I hate that 'poor struggling student' bit.  Most university students are buying everything with their parents money anyways.

Does the download on your site contain an actual font?
