Incidentally, I went to 'the other site' (TMP) and found what I think is the thread where the other person's statement was raised. It certainly wasn't a claim of copyrite violation or anything of the sort. The 'other statement' was quite nicely written. Now, of course, I may have not found the actual thread but one similar to it, and that same person may be getting ready to file a lawsuit against Osprey/Slitherine (heaven can only imagine what the Austrian Historical Society are going to do - probably a similar lawsuit) but it APPEARS that Mr Hollins is actually putting words into another persons statement. After re-reading what Mr Hollins has said, I note that he didn't actually make any accusations, but used vague words to make it appear that things were worse than they actually are.
He doesn't like the rules... that's fine. Generally I don't like what I've read either. I'll make the choice to play them or not depending on a LOT of variables, but I do believe that he's being deliberately obnoxious for reasons of his own.
