[theme-reviewers] Redistributing edited themes

I came across this site http://www.alihan.com.tr/blog/
It distributes WordPress themes including those found on wordpress.org. The
themes have been edited to contain spammy links. The theme names were also
edited to prevent users from updating. Nothing new about that, a lot of
sites do that. But this guy also has his own themes hosted on wordpress.org(
http://profiles.wordpress.org/alihan1988/) and on most of those themes the
Credit Link points to the url that redistributes the edited themes. So what
are your thoughts on this? Is the guy in violation of some policy or is he
just being a naughty boy?
