      Description

      dsp2003 sent me an e-mail regarding copyright of Marlett.ttf as follows:

      Hello.

      If you don't remember me, I'm the author of the font you were fixing.

      The last time I did say I no longer want to do anything with ReactOS
      project and politely asked you to remove my name from the font and its
      fields or remove my font from the project altogether.

      Alas, you did neither of those things.

      Please understand, I don't want to be associated with this project.
      Not only due to the "real name reveal" policy that was recently
      imposed on every project's member, but also due to bad blood with
      two particular members:

      ...(Omitted)...

      I'm sure you didn't want to know and don't care about all this, but I
      sincerely hope you are sane and understanding human being.

      So please, if my plead means anything to you, remove any mentions of
      me from the font file or completely replace it with Marlett.ttf from
      Wine. I regret I ever contributed anything to this project, it gave me
      nothing but pain and humiliation.

      Thank you for listening and, hopefully, understanding.

      We have to do something about Marlett.ttf.
