thank you for posting. as a Teksavvy user this means a lot. especially after the last few weeks.
it probably seems like many users lashed out unfairly at Teksavvy. for my part, im apologizing if that is how i came off. for myself, this entire thing came out of nowhere. it blindsided me and all of sudden courts and legal stuff was a real possibility. im not expert in law or copyright or any of this stuff. even unnamed it scared the **** out of me. still stresses me a bit tbh. i dont want what i am about to say to be seen as an emotional knee jerk reaction. but if Teksavvy were to send out a letter or something, describing this like David Ellis did, and asked for donations to help this cause, i would donate. just sayin.
Pretty mature reply, I'd say. A few of the hard-core anti-TekSavvy types are still throwing around the accusations of "fanboi" and such, but for the most part I think people are acknowledging that TekSavvy has done well so far. Lots of warning, got things pushed back, working to get CIPPIC into play. All good.
Doesn't mean we'll win, but things look better today than they did a month ago and that's a small victory to be sure. In the meantime, if you're worried, I really do recommend shelling out a few bucks a month for VPN & proxy services. They may not be perfect, but they're an excellent first line of defense against copyright trolls and other would-be privacy invaders.
