    This thread is fucking hillarious.

    Now, all we gotta do is bring syed here and show LessWrong who is more rational.

    @MoreWrong: Right, this isn't the place to debate your 'opinions' on copyright law. Open another thread for that.

    We're here to discuss, using current copyright law, the lawfulness of your/LessWrong's actions.

    Not prior to this request for donations, but as he's now trading fanfiction for donation money, he is.
    No, I believe that they're a system that does work, however, and the one which is morally right in respect to the actual author of the original fiction.

    The problem is that Yudkowsky is asking for money in exchange for the SERVICE of posting faster updates of a fanfiction story. It doesn't matter that the money goes to SIAI and only via them into his pocket- the point is that he tries to get money for a SERVICE he offers pertaining copyrighted material HE doesn't OWN.

    Uh. How about missing the point? This isn't about whether it is the only system that would work. The issue is about what LessWrong has done is violating the system that is in place.

    Avoiding the issue much?

    Edit: Ninja'd by four peeps, but most important dhulli. Damn you guys are quick.

    So basically he's agreed that we're right and has moved onto hypotheticals.

    This thread is now about my new ban mask.

    What should it be?

    I just lost the game.

    Your ban mask should be "Lost the Game."

    If he would at least have asked money to not post updates.

    This thread is exactly why half of DLP needs culling. FML guys, find some fucking self-respect.

    Don't get me wrong, MoR is a complete piece of shit, but recommending that anyone take this to WB or FFNet? Taure you ought to think before you post shit.

    To the rest of you jumping on the "Fuck-Yeah!" DLP train, shut up. This is exactly why DLP is generally considered a nesting ground for trolls rather than as a producer of quality fanfiction writers and critics, which is what we actually are.

    Seriously, you've achieved sweet fuck all except proving yourselves complete embarrassments.

    Oh enembee, you so hipster.

    (For the record, if any DLP member tried to sell fanfiction I'd report them too. It's just not on. The fact that Yudkowsky is a douchebag is just an added bonus.)

    Sexually.

    Riddle me this, what have you actually achieved? I mean aside from jeopardizing everyone's fun by calling in WB's asshats in suits? Even if you get his story deleted, what will that achieve?

    Also, fuck off if you want me or anyone else to believe that you give a shit about intellectual property. If you care so passionately, stop posting fanfiction to FFNet, who plaster every page of every story with ads. DLP takes donations too, gonna take it up with Ravenclaw?

    This shit is ridiculous and embarrassing. All you've done is give LessWrong another unjustified bag of reviews, bring more negative light on this forum (which helps nobody) and stirred up a whole bunch of irrelevant internet drama.

    Pointless.

    ... who exactly cares what everyone not on this forum thinks about this forum? If LessWrong feels the need to review his own story with a rant about us (lol for irony), it's more or less free advertisement. I'm perfectly happy to be disliked by everyone who reads MoR. I'd be concerned if it was any other way.
