They tried to get us involved in a legal quagmire with this ‘box’ they are selling that has a builtin ROM downloader, and tried to get us to make cross-promotional advertising for them. The bait on the hook was a Patreon pledge. We have immediately revoked their pledge and after some threats of forking/rebranding our repos and project, and threatening to launch some defamatory article, we have decided to launch this piece.

We will also not provide others an advertising platform to allow them to trick our users into signing an EULA when using their product that shifts all the legal issues surrounding their product onto the user.
