Who were you talking to? I'd love to see the source from which you
formed this opinion.

How does Hebrew Qaballa applied to English words "relate to the
existing Thelemic texts" any more o less than an English Qaballa
applied to English words?
It's basis on the magical number 11 and the way it fits so well on
the grid page of Liber Legis are powerful proofs. It is very
practical and yeilds suprising results.
I think it might be important to distinguish orders like QBLH who
have adopted EQ from the EQ system itself.
Not to mention that it might be considered intolerant to
characterize these groups as "knockoffs", after all in the case of
QBLH it has stonger consistent memnership and activites than McMurtys
OTO that languished for years. At least thats what I have found in my
brief historical research. I like to have tolerance for both/all
groups, as I find it particulary foolish to try to judge anothers
like to the secet cheifs.
Also as far as I know all publishing activites are original works,
with perhaps the biggest problem for the copyrights is enumerated
texts being published.

Similar complaints are made of officaial OTO, guess you can't please
everybody all the time.
