I have reason to attack, actually it's not 'attack', it's more like 'defending myself', because I read whole your post (yeah, I really took time to read it whole), where you clarify mistrust to me, that's really nice of you, I thought of you as of partner all the time. It's really offensive to me, it has nothing to do whether you were right about Smirnoff or no, let's finally throw this past our heads.
Let's finally stop all this bullshit about who is who, if network survived 4 years, one little conflict shouldn't destroy everything, at least that's my opinion right now, we seriously look like kids now... so unprofessional.
I have no crazy intentions with network, everything will be as it used to be, installer is already prepared, which solves all problems with admin rights, detecting memory injectors already works and even hardware ID bound accounts already work, so we can finally ban cheaters for real and with no mercy. Of course, no hardware ID will be ever sent to server, only hash of it, for matters of security.
This topic will have no effect on my own will to finally finish client (if that's what you are worried about), client that I delayed for so long, because even me, myself, want to have something that's really worth it, something I can be proud of, not something that looks made by student when he was young. Let's admit it, old client kinda sucks and is laggy, map downloader is annoying also. And 64bit players will finally be able to fully enjoy the game, also with AMD FX players.
Also new version of SSM is already ready, with name protection, no statistics for people with random IDs, better ban system, reworked Translation system (NO MORE SLOVAK NAMES FOR THINGS!), and I am also thinking about more user groups like CryFire has, you know (Supervisor, etc.)
So things right now are really simple, you do your thing, which is social & propagation stuff, and I do my thing, which is developing solutions for network.
Reason I want SSL is simple, SSL gets you higher positions in Google searches, and it makes me feel secure to use log-in system, when I know all data are encrypted over the network, also you can get SSL certs for free at https://letsencrypt.org/
SSL isn't only for corporate websites.
Oh, and I didn't say I hate you, did I? I don't remember writing word "hate" anywhere, so I don't know where you got that from. And stop playing on feelings and using reverse psychology, it's annoying :D
