haha No, Justin. Having grown up on the internet I do not use sarcasm on it. When I do it is explicitly obvious. So take the compliment!
Really I was just pondering the cost theme to stoke the idea that there is more than is obvious working to affect pricing. I don't necessarily believe everything I wrote, but was just thinking and tossing it out there for someone to show me another side, so thanks for the challenges! :D
And while I'd agree it's possible this won't end well for the hobby, it could equally catalyze a unification of enthusiasts to deny AutoArt their plan. It's like any other social structure in the regard that it is what we make of it. Sadly it isn't a hobby enough people are passionate enough about to do something like, make a change. We've got wars to fight and mouths to feed. On that bombshell, it's more possible than any other direction we could go in.
Glad I cashed in when I did!
