If you want to use black and white terms only I can't disagree, but I'm guessing it's slightly more complicated.
I wonder what people would say if Cheapy decided to sell CAG.
It's not the same thing. Those of us who are upset have money and/or games tied up on VGfive. TZ needed users to help fund VGFive and make it grow in order to have an active trading base.
Cheapy probably needed help with modding and administrating but nobody here ever had to use their money to buy tokens to use CAG, nor did we ever need to give up our games in order to be part of the community.
If Cheapy sold CAG, I'd be sad that the community might change but I wouldn't feel exploited because I never had to pay/give up anything to use the site. In fact, I'd say I actually benefited from all the free information I can get off of CAG on deals and whatnot. But TZ selling VGfive kinda feels like he took our investments and got rich off of it.
