    Quoted from Blackbeard:

    Has copywrite been assigned to this material?

    Copywrite ownership doesn't have to be assigned. It's automatically property the creator when they make something.

    That being said I think it's weird that someone would get so upset over a photos of pinball machine parts to harass someone into removing their entire website.

    Quoted from Eddie:

    If I give you a gift do as you please with it. Want to make money with it?

    It's like getting upset with facebook for putting ads alongside your photo album.

    Quoted from cody_chunn:

    Clay, you have GOT to get some thicker skin. Unless you didn't plan to re-launch the guides at all and were just looking for an excuse not to, changing your mind on one fellow's posts is...well...just lame.


    10 people say how much they respect Clay and how much it has meant for the hobby, then 1 comes along as says "Why are you backpedaling from an absolute no." and the man completely blows a cap.

    I'm not saying anyone should have to deal with unwarranted or outright mean criticism, but if you are really good at something and successful, it's going to breed jealousy no matter what. It's the internet....assholes + anonymity = bigger assholes. When you run a website or post in a forum, there are going to be assholes and trolls 100% of the time. But for every bad apple there are 10 good. Not just Clay, but anyone posting stuff online has to learn to ignore the minority of d-bags and appreciate majority, which are helpful, appreciative, and friendly people.

    I promise you the people that talk shit, troll, or rubble rouse do not matter. They don't matter now, and they won't ever matter. It's unfortunate, but it's the way the internet has always been.

    Quoted from vid1900:

    There will always be a bunch of people who hate Clay.
    And those people know how to push his buttons and get him fired up in about 2 seconds.
    The guides are never coming back from Clay - ever.
    Some of the overseas mirrors of the guides were posted by people now dead for over two years and obviously the guides don't even draw enough traffic to concern the web hosting company (let alone non-payment for years).
    The torrents are being seeded by 11 people on one and 7 on the other - with no one at all currently downloading.
    So even with this 6 page thread bringing lots of attention to the torrents, no one is downloading them.

    I have a feeling that most of the people who want them have them.

    I've been thinking about reformatting the copies I have to be easier to navigate and more useful for myself...but I really have to motivation because I couldn't share with anyone.
