MP wouldn't be where they are now without us. And we wont be able to be where we are now without MP. I would'nt have found MP if someone didnt tell me about MP in the first place. Whether it's by "xx software sucks, use MP" or "xx software is shutting down, use MP" or, "this, that, or MP, which one is better?"
While i agree cutting off attention is needed, purely from my POV albeit selfish, ultimately it is up to whoever has more money for the lawyers game.
Whether they sold themselves, or IG really did came after them, MP has probably no say if IG ever did come for them with lawyers.
Back on topic of public attention. This site's SEO is really great. Beating even BHW in some cases. This all brings revenue back to MP to further develop tools by our request.
It's gonna be some endless debate.
