Came the Thunder

Flattered but not...

I've had a review of 'Came the Thunder' at 'Twisting the Hellmouth' saying:
"Good story ya? May I use Thunder in a story?"

The reviewer has only one story up at TtH, a 350-word opening chapter of a WIP, and it consists almost entirely of webcomic characters giving their names.

Is it hypocritical of me, when I have used characters belonging to Joss Whedon, Brad Wright and Jonathan Glassner, Ed Greenwood, Robert Salvatore, and others in almost a million words of unofficial stories, for my immediate reaction to be to want to say "Over my dead body"?
