I understand how frustrating it is when people, one rely on, show a tendency towards self destruction. One thing is for sure though, Ian has shown himself to be real. He walks the walk. I think this street cred will mean something for the future of FTL. Amp, ads and all that will increase simply because FTL is such a effective and legitimate real world hub of liberty communication. Had Ian never showed his willingness to follow his own bad advice this would look bad to libertarians who tend to value merit. Look at all the shit "Sovereign" Curtis is getting.
