That said, Kaeroku, if you want to worry with a lawsuit, you're going to have a lot more luck on Kickstarter than here. It's worth pointing out that the people that frequent the forums typically do so because they still like Josh/LT/the community, not the other way around. Talking about lawsuits here is generally not well accepted. Even in the unhappiness thread.
I don't think such reply to Kaeroku was particularly the correct one. It was actually sad to read such a reply just after Kaeroku got a rage-reply from someone else. But, first, let me make it clear: I would never join a lawsuit against Josh, even if he deserved it (which I think he doesn't). And actually I find the idea a bit silly: who would be willing to spend money, time and effort with that just to recover like $20, $30 or even $200 from Josh? It makes no sense.
Now, I think it's absurd to say that people cannot talk
about that if they want. Or, to use your words, that it's not well accepted. IF it is not well accepted, it's people's job to start learning how to accept reading talks, particularly in this thread, that they don't agree with. And without indulging themselves in becoming offensive. And it's job of everyone how want to keep this place a nice one, in particular the moderators I would think, to reprimend offensive posts as the one Kaeroku got as a reply to his idea. What I, for one, think it's unnaceptable is that someone thinks it's ok to write an aggressive post to Kaeroku.
Kaeroku: again, I find your idea not very well thought-through, because the trouble and costs of lawsuit, even a collective one, would be far beyond any money you can recover from Josh. I even find it unfair, because if Josh has given proof that he is not prepared to be a professional gamedev, he has also given proof that this was never a scam. Anyways, don't let people intimidate you on what you should or not talk here, specially in this thread, provided that you keep being polite and keep talking nicely.
