What does deeply concern me is the fact that someone who is so self-serving has control of the Forge.
Is that such a bad thing? Does everymodder have to be open minded? or be a nice person?
As a bad example look at Doctor House (Yeah i know hes a tv personallity), hes a pretty horrible human being but its still one of the best doctors (in the series).
I dont have to be a nice or good person to be a modder, i can be as closed minded as i want and insult you if you are being overly annoying. If you dont like it the door its over there simple as that, i have a right to treat MY CREATIONS that came from my OWN MIND as i see fit, that minecraft have become the vessel to carry on my creativity its a entirely different matter, minecraft its made by mojang, RedPower is made by Eloraam. Mojang gave permission to mod minecraft to a certain degree (Decompiling the code, and do modification of the such), Eloraam hasnt given permission whatsoever for modding her mod (Redundant i know but still), even looking at the deobfuscated code without her permission its a insult to her and her work.
The least you could do as a "Fellow" Dev, its respecting the wishes of the other devs when it comes to their code, you must know how difficult it is to code something in the first place.
(And like someone said before, Eloraam doesnt have the entire control of the forge lately and even if she still did, Spacetoad was the original developer of forge so his Open Source license (Minecraft modding license or something was called iirc) still applied even to anything eloraam decides to add to the project.)
