The new chain hasn't even started yet and it feels like it is already compromised by this move. I'm not on the list myself, but I feel for the ones that are as many of them just expressed a neutral view on the entire hostile takeover. Even @aggroed commented on the MSP Waves meetings that The Korean Community was voting on both sides to make sure nobody could make a move and saw that as a good thing.
I get how the Ninja Mined Stake is Removed from the new hard fork, but starting the new chain forking out individual accounts is just wrong especially since it's done based on rules that are by no means consistent and include people that did nothing wrong. How you you start a new chain claiming to fight centralization making an extremely centralized move like this?
I just don't understand how any of the witnesses can support this and as much as I like the idea behind the Hive fork, this move completely kills all my enthusiasm and feel they burried Hive before it even started.
