Exactly and I find it rather insulting that a broad brush has been used describing this diverse community with many ideas that do not necessarily agree with the dev team. But we discuss the ideas and determine their actual worth rather than an emotional (its my pet idea and must be good, come on it must be ) worth.
All I can say is what I was once told and that is when ever you point the finger there is 3 pointing back at you. Its the old put down like fan-boys, cannot think for yourself, and so on. Just unimaginative attacks on a specified group.
Discussions is the key, and never expect a pet idea to be practical or good when exposed to the light of others
Also this community is definitely not in agreement with everything, only takes a little bit of reading to see the diverse and often opposing views. But the Maidsafe team set out with a set of fundamental goals for the project and anyone who wishes to create a differing network/project are free to do so and as @mav says there will be plenty here who will want to follow your project. Probably best to create a topic in #related-projects for your project and post updates there. I am sure you will not get the opposition since you are not trying to change the fundamentals of the SAFE network.
