The Readability Argument

Ben Brooks discusses the recent argument about Readability that took place on Twitter over the weekend between the likes of John Gruber, Jason Snell, Jeffrey Zeldman, and others, and also led to this blog post by Anil Dash. After reading Dash's post and following the Twitter conversation, I am still left wondering the same two things as Brooks:

  1. Why does Readability feel it is OK to collect money in another’s name without that persons permission?
  2. What, specifically, happens to the unclaimed money?

I think users and publishers deserve answers to both of those questions.

Eagerly waiting to hear the answer to those, since they have still gone unanswered since this entire argument began months ago.
