Please be specific and IMO you put this on wrong section, unless you're gonna talk about your idea.

If someone stole your idea, why don't you talk to the person? Have you noticed that sometimes in history two great minds stumble upon the same idea but only one is credited with the invention because he/she patented it first? Sometimes an idea is just waiting to happen and whoever gets it first wins. I'm just generalizing of course. I'm not trying to oppose you. If you discuss the matter with the concerned person, it might help you to figure out what happened.

It's a good thing that the code is completely different from what you did.

Also, this isn't "stealing your idea". You created a pull request for a particular feature. People did not like how you implemented it (and they also did not like how you rude you were in the thread and on IRC). The existence of your pull request has been taken as a feature request (you put out a request for us to implement this feature). Someone is implementing the feature you requested.

Calling people bastards, morons, ignoring review comments and on top of all think you are entitled to donations because of this simple idea you had doesn't really help your case!

An idea means nothing, anyone can come up with an idea. It takes balls to turn create a business with an idea and make money, something that most people can't do. Ideas are worthless until they make money, and then they're only worth as much money as they can make. It's not the idea that makes money, it's the person.

For those who didnt catch:

Given that this is an entirely new implementation, and includes the build system changes, I don't think you need to cherry-pick/include the other committer.
that's what we have

come on, the very spirit of the pull/feature commit is to ask the dev team or others to provide an additional level of functionality, implying that the pull request is coming from a person taht does not have the time or the ability to do this themselves.  putting some code with that request is helpful and sometimes a good start, but the key word here is "request".  either way, github is a collaboration medium, and most of the code there is not just open source, but it can be forked and altered by others.  without checking, i am nearly 100% positive that bitcoin core is carrying the GNU/apache "copywriting" license, although there is a tiny chance that they have not chosen any license type, because from satoshi to today, this is intended to be transparent, open source and open to code changes from nearly anywhere, good code forks taking power over the old fork if it is good enough. 

point is that no idea, no snippet of code, or concept of technology applied to the bitcoin core in any way, that is ever chased down, and had the "credit" strangled out of it with the fervor that you have in this case, and for no reason at all, wronged or not, its not worth it dude
