Certainly not a clone if not exactly the same

No, i'm not referring to a chess engine clone. Just figured out that countless posts taken from Chesstroid are floating around the web since a while, probably in parallel to the popularity increase of this modest source about mobile chess engine releases.

Now that Chesstroid reached more than 320K hits after more than 3 years without using embarrassing ads or speculations on chess forums to attract undeserved attention, it's still not understandable why web spamming finds it interesting.

So, i'm laughing when i read this not-a-clone which says:

CorCfish is an try to support Cfish, similarly to what used to be achieved with Stockfish to procure CorChess. Despite the fact that the purpose is also no longer extactly the similar intimately, the process seems to be identical. I do not know what the end result is however you’ll be able to take a look at it to expose your opinion.

And below is the original text:

CorCfish is an attempt to improve Cfish, in a similar way to what was done with Stockfish to obtain CorChess. Even though the aim may be not extactly the same in detail, the method looks similar. I don't know what the outcome is but you can test it to reveal your opinion.

As you can easily notice, the text is not exactly the same. So we can force ourselves to think they are not cloning. No, certainly not...

I checked this app. It's not a serious one to me. Even if the engine is strong, there's few probability of originality. My guess is that the developer used an open source engine.
