I frankly despise all authors daring to go ahead with this thing, as I fail to see this whole endeavor as anything but a money/15 min fame grab, since IA is only living to its name, for the sake of culture.

It just feels like good vs evil at this point.

Well, if there's one thing I've learned, when it comes to a battle between good and evil, the winner is the one who had more money at the start usually.

That would be evil. It takes the shortcuts, and sacrifices people when they're no longer useful, or become a liability. So, lots of short term gains, coupled with limited losses.

Just so you know, IA had incoming revenue of 36 million in 2019. I doubt many authors come close to that.

I doubt any authors have websites the size of IA

Well if they are positioning this as a fight between authors and IA, IA is the giant and individual authors are David.

Seeing my forum posts from early 00s when I was cringy 13y/o is priceless.

I miss communities from that era.

Pretty sure this case doesn't affect the website archive/wayback machine.
It seems to be related to their book library.
