I make these themes for free so the least you can do for me is to leave the credit in its place and this means in the coding and the public link (which usually sits next to the archive link).
Do Not Steal/Use As A Base
Please don't copy any part of the coding or add it to other peoples themes and claim it as your own. My themes are not theme bases so don't remove the credit, edit it and redistribute as your own. This also means that you shouldn't edit my coding and redistribute even if the credit is still intact.
