Here's a summary:
karajorma: check it out, Derek Smart says he's going to develop Freespace 3.
everyone: oh sweet merciful crap, no!
Derek Smart: Your opinions are worthless, you're all weak. I'm an alpha male, a born leader, so I'm not going to ask a few meesly fans for their opinions. I'm a very, very succesful person.
everyone: Whats your problem Smart? We all want to see Freespace 3, but not if your name is attached to it.
Derek Smart: Better watch your tone when speaking to me. I have a team of crack lawyers on speed-dial. Mods have no right to exist, neither does Ferrium or the SCP. If I get the licesnse, and I'll see to it that I do, there's gonna be legal trouble flying your way.
eveyone: thats it, inform everyone you can about this. Blues News, Penny Arcade, Slashdot - everyone. He's not getting away with this.
everyone: we need to set up some sort of fund, to maybe buy the rights from Interplay. That, or get another developer/publisher to buy it, anyone but Smart.
