you previous post implies that you think that if rusty did this then it would be a violation of trust since he claimed that no such thing would be done by him (and I agree)
I see the distinction, and the following explains my position: If rusty had gone and presented what you had implemented, as a part of k5, or moreover, as an added feature to Scoop, then my perception of the addition would be different.
...and on the subject of perceptions, and my apparent contradictiontory statements:
I went back and checked the ToS, and yes, you're correct in that it says little beyond "Rusty won't do anything with the info". I think what is clashing here is what my (not speaking for anyone else here) perceptions of what those ToS implied. A large part of that is due to the very nature of the community, which I've been a part of for a while, and how I relate to that community. (This may hold true for you other k5'ers out there as well).
To me this was like a local pub: maybe not the best and the busiest, but a place I could kick back. Then the bartender makes some kind of funky shooter that no-one else has, and all of a sudden you have the glitterati coming in, a velvet rope outside, and Aerosmith is playing the joint. =)
Anyhoo, I hope you get my point. I know you're not technically doing anything wrong, or violating the ToS. That doesn't mean I have to like what you are doing, even though I can admire how it was done. m'kay?
