"hahah, tk has been waiting his whole life for this thread" ... no, not exactly. but it's definitely reassuring knowing im not the only one who saw this b.s.
and no it's really not any more complex than " "Tora was willing to save everything & iL said no" ... that's exactly how it goes. I dealt with the exact same b.s. as an admin. Most recently (while not an admin) i identified what seems to be a damn good fix for the hosting issue we've been talking about the last decade. Firewall hole punching is the term i believe. I gave links to the information and programmers for hire who were familiar with it and would know how to do it... and offered to fund/contribute. They ignored it. Completely ignored it.
"the server is a public utility hosted & operated by volunteers for free for everyone's enjoyment, thus no one has any obligation to do anything to enhance it" ... I personally think that's b.s.. If someone is spending their time and energy trying to enhance a project, and someone else who gives essentially zero contributions to that project stands in your way.. that's a problem... and im sorry but moving a thread around or locking a thread every blue moon is not a serious contribution. If he's still paying for the server I am 100% confident there are other people willing to take on the responsibility of 20-30 bucks a month. and i'm one of them
