I think I have talked enough on the other thread, but I wanted to respond to this :
"no one seems to be asking (or saying) *why* max forte is upset about the branding confusion. (...) a Savage Minds Cooperative?" To which I say, go right the fuck ahead".
IMO Max was pissed off notably because the discussion about sharing copyrighted resources sunk, and he was insulted (and/or being talk down). If someone tried to create a savage minds cooperative with your help, and then that person talk to you like shit and care more about its own product survival (OAC was meant to be an experience to begin with) than about making knowledge accessible; you would be pissed off. What do you think ?
