No, repoting rips isn't a joke.
Winamp staff and reviewers are only human, and as such are not aware of every single skin in the database and any duplicates that may exist.
That's why we rely on members of the public, like yourself, who would spot these rips, and that's why this rip removal forum was created so they could be reported and removed quickly.
With the best will in the world, , we are never going to be able to spot every single rip before it gets submitted, heck I don't even know who vegeta is, so how would I know there was a duplicate skin in the database?
Anyhow, your report has been dealt with and the rip removed, there aint we quick?
