And there was no need to Bold, what you bolded. Obviously, he can't release something that was created by other people. In theory.
But, again, that wasn't my point. My point, was to show that he doesn't really care what people do with his ideas and information associated with his name. So there wouldn't be an actual need, for him to stick around, and make sure everything goes just the way he wants it to go. If he cared, then he wouldn't allow his work, to be used by anyone, for any reason.
The fact that he decided to have an emotional meltdown towards the forum, throws an unforeseen screw into the gears of the machine. Unforeseen by us, and also by him. Erin said that's it's illegal to sell the forum. Which is a bunch of crap. Forums are sold left and right.
