yeah. I never played Threes, so when this came up, I thought it was a new thing. ha!
That's one of the interesting things about that open letter. Things can get created and distributed so quickly nowadays, there can be very little time for an original idea to be able to establish that it is
the original idea before the copycats come along.
The best thing to do is to make sure everyone knows Threes started the ball rolling. Maybe keep that letter page saved for a while.
I have to say, even though the Threes guys are fairly calm about it, seeing all these clones pisses me off. Not your fault, though, Caine.
