I doubt hes the only one that happened to.
I doubt I would be flattered if someone directly copied my work. Personally, I don't think copying the idea is that big of a deal, if made in a different way, that is.
Hwo knows? they might have gotten the same idea whitout even hearing about eatch other.
I'm sorry for all the errors in the post, its late here and I'm simply too tierd to check it.
This has actually happened to me a number of times now. 'I' keep cropping up in galleries all over the place where I've never posted, with weird email addresses and such. The stupidest one so far, however, was a guy who claimed I was a mentor and that we painted the pictures together. He posted them and when someone tried to call him on it, he said that they could never prove I wasn't his mentor and that, in fact, he'd helped me with most of my work (these pieces including a self-portrait among other things). Normal fake-me I can handle, but that was just messed up, heheh.
