Let him waste his cash.  He won't have anything to show for it.

I think his ego has actually evolved to a state where it is fully seperate from his physical body, and thus is free to travel the internet at will.

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.

It's not really an important discussion. I would be supremely surprised if he listened to anything we have to say. Best leave him to it and keep out of his way. That way he's more likely to leave this community and it's projects alone.

We are progressing quite nicely through the three stages:

1) Denial
No!  He can't be doing it!

2) Anger
Blast!  We must make sure he doesn't!

3) Acceptence
We laugh at his futile efforts!  Bwahahahaha!

Agreed.  But we have to be careful, as it only takes his name showing up three times for him to magically appear.

Edit: ok, I can't keep up.  And I'm on broadband.

I came late on in this discussion and thus start at stage three by default.

Personally, I'm torn between the hilarity of DS suing Kazan (I'd pay money to see THAT on Judge Judy) and the real "Unholy Alliance" of those two working together. They'd either get along famously or be at each other's throats in about 0.00000000007 seconds.

We haven't begun to even get to the real depths of horror, kids.

Man, I appreciate you trying to inject some humour into this, but I seriously encourage you to edit your post and delete that. We've got enough discontent flying around, and the situation was just calming down.

Something just hit me: does smart actually know about the existence of Counterstrike?

Imagine if Valve had said no to the original Counterstrike mod... They'd be a couple of million dollars poorer now.

Allowing free mods = allowing talent to flourish and extra cash for the creator of the game due to increased sales.
It came from outer space! What? Dunno, but it's going back on the next flight!
