1. Blue was incorrect in his statement. The definition of words do in fact change, and the use of Unlimited has changed, based on the simple fact that a large number of industries use it by its non literal definition.
2. Collabora used what is called an 'analogy', which describes the similarities of two entirely different situations. His goal was to help you, and others, better understand what 'unlimited' hosting is.
3. That thread has absolutely nothing to do with anything. However, as stated by the last paragraph, "I will return again, but likely just as an observer, rather than as a contributor"
which didn't in any way rule out the possibility of me returning, but rather, if I did return, I wouldn't be as active as I once was.
4. We're not 'leaving' because others fail to share the same opinions, but rather, the hostility of 'others' who wish to defend their opinions, and want to hear nothing in return from the supposed 'attacker' or 'intruder'. The lack of an open mind, and the complete unwillingness to accept new industry standards. That is what 'angers' us the most, not the simple act of engaging ourselves in a conversation or debate.
Basically, because we are accepting the new industry 'unlimited' standard, we're the 'bad guys' of the community, and are treated as such.
However, when we provide our own side of the story, our opinions, the other side, in this case 'your' side, actually has the audacity to call the other industry leaders 'thieves' for using a method of hosting that the 'other side' doesn't accept or understand.
To call out a whole side of the web hosting industry because they use a term that you disagree with is a form of being naive and ignorant, or quite simply, unwilling to accept change, and fighting against such change when that change threatens what you believe in, or the way that you handle or run your own hosting services.
We are in no way attempting to get you to change the way that you operate your hosting services, as quite honestly, we don't care enough to do so. It's your company to do with as you please.
All we are trying to do is get you, and others, to open your eyes to the way that others operate their services. To simply state that unlimited is a scam or a fraud is a very stupid thing to do, at least, without first researching and understanding what the term itself truly means when applied to the web hosting industry.
You're basing your entire argument on a term that you do not comprehend. To add to that, you're not even willing to attempt to understand the term, and act hostile towards anyone who wishes to help you understand.
Analogies help people understand. To reword something in a language or phrase that others could relate to. However, it seems as though you, and the other 'anti-unlimited' crowd (as Collabora refers to them) are completely unwilling to even take anything that we say into consideration, let alone accept anything that happens to come out of our mouths as truth or fact. (even if you do not believe it to be truth or fact, you simply don't have enough knowledge on the subject to come up with your own solid basis of understanding)
