I have lost all respect for Internet Brands and its management team, as well as some other employees, for what I perceive is a frivolous lawsuit (and additional legal threats) against the unpaid volunteers of this wiki. I encourage Hellman & Friedman, which owns Internet Brands, to do the right thing and end the legal threats and lawsuits against the people - the community of this wiki - that built it for exercising their due rights under the Creative Commons license. Based on my non-legally trained interpretation of the lawsuit filed against contributors, the mere fact that the company would go so far shows that it seemingly does not comprehend the open source nature of the project we have been working on since 2003, shows serious judgment deficiencies from the persons directly responsible for this website at IB. I also encourage Hellman & Friedman to reassess the performance and status of the CEO of Internet Brands as the company's leader. As I am morally outraged, I find it no longer possible to constructively contribute to this website. I will be moving on to a future travel guide project. This administrator and bureaucrat hereby resigns all privileges on this wiki (albeit they were already revoked without community approval).
