I know it is just a fanfiction but I wrote it & it came from me for others to enjoy not to steal I never had this happen to me before. Why do people like @officialardorfanel17 think it is okay to steal others work on wattpad? How will wattpad make it more safe for other writers to share their work?

Hello Mr. Lau,
First of all let me thank you for giving the world Wattpad, and also congratulate you and your entire team for its success. I have a very simple question. What made you and your team of co founders name this project Wattpad? I am sure it's a Wattpad worthy story. :)
