So who is copying who?

Postby johnTan » Fri Mar 13, 2009 11:56 am

we made absolutely no money out of this deal so you can keep all the conspiracy theories on the backburner!


:lol: "he" can deceive other people, but "he" could not cheat his own.

it's common sense... who'll admit monetary policy ?

Sad? Have you spent hours creating maps before? You will never understand the sadness of people copying your hard work if you don't.

This is my comment to those who try to hard trying to act neutral. Neutrality is the continue support to both parties irregardless of any wrongdoings. Neutrality is not blind disregard of what's wrong. Portraying yourself too hard as "reasonable" and you'll only get a "fake" impression.

This is my challenge to you - you want to start mapping to experience sadness?

I didn't intend to ruffle any feathers by my above comment and you have totally misunderstood what I meant to say. I have utmost respect for the mappers, otherwise I wouldn't contribute to this forum. Anyway, i'll let the issue rest and I apologise sincerely if my comments were deemed inappropriate. :rox:

Does it mean that the old data (which was the initial data when MFM was formed) has been reverse engineered? If yes, then it's a different case altogether.

Bro Tokong's case might be just an isolated case of his noble intention to contribute to both communities, although his method might be wrong.

But if it's a case of reverse engineering, then it's indeed a serious issue. I hope the issues can be settled amicably between both parties. Especially since Garmin has been involved in this case.
