Quote from: detourne_me on January 25, 2009, 06:09:52 PMok, i'm damn glad i'm drunk every time i come to this site now.how does Green Hornet have no vested interest in the siuation.I assume he is a player of the game, and a player of mods to the game. his interests are that we as community can allow creators (skinners, fx'ers, meshers, skopes, hexers and mod'ers...thats a lot of er's) to create content for others to enjoy.He has vested interests in this, as do we all.Seriously, we cant all be superstars, and I truly appreciate the content that the superstars do create, cripes i aspire to be one, but i'm a damn fool and my own lack of talent and conviction have stopped such a fate from happening.Ok, so tensions are still running high (as evidenced by this post) but what, are we going to have a moratorium on discussing mods for 1,2,3 months?There have been at least 3 threads started by people in different sections of the site that want to open discussion in an optimistic manner...maybe those posts are too optimistic and "let's pretend nothing happened" in nature for the offended parties.Now, I tend to agree with IPS that it's too soon. However personal barbs at lack of knowledge aren't necessary. Personally I find it strange how this community is against torrents. But I understand that it is because of our subject matter itself why such disagreements and discussions exist.We're all gawdammed obsessed with superheroes, the idea of "doing the right thing" and all of the heroic endeavors that they entail.This extends to ideas of personal property versus communal sharing. pride versus theft. Cripes, i wish ow_tiobe and dr. mike would chime in at one point.We've all invested a lot into this game, be it time (in producing content, and in consuming content) or in money (supporting sites) so please, allow everybody an opinion.

Quote from: ips on January 25, 2009, 06:12:06 PMwe all have a right to peaceful co-existence here. anyone should be able to discuss this. but what's the harm in letting at least a couple weeks go by and the current issues die before we start a new divisive argument. cat is right. there aren't many times this sorta problem has come up. it's not pressing that it be discussed while most of us are still bitter. (yes that includes me)
Quotedood, let it go. you're the only one arguing about copyright. you're the only one who's brought it up (in any way) in years. it's not even relevant to any of the discussions we've had.
