Internet Brands, the publicly traded company listed on the NASDAQ exchange as INET, seems to have a bit of a revolt on their hands. They're the current owners of Dave's Garden, one of the internet's most popular gardening forums. After Dave sold off Dave's Garden he started Cubits.org. A website where people could create websites on a wide-range of topics and split the advertising revenue. Today, a commenter left me a message informing me of the drama going on at Dave's Garden.
It seems that INET served Dave with a cease and desist letter over the creation of Cubits.org. The original thread where the revolt on Dave's Garden is taking place has been taken down or moved, but through the magic of Google you can read the cached version, here, for the time being.
I Haven't found the cease and desist letter with the particulars but from reading the comments it seems like there may be issues involving intellectually property, mainly the code that Dave's Garden runs on and Dave breaking the non-compete clause of his sale of Dave's Garden. Cubits does share that aesthetic Dave's Garden is known for.
Just about every member in the thread is threatening to not renew their membership at Dave's Garden. Members of Cubits.org are upset that the "websites" they created at Cubits will be taken down and lost.
Given how easy it is to create a website or blog, free in most cases, where you can control the content and don't have to split advertising revenue, I don't know why gardeners would've put work into creating a Cubit, they ultimately didn't have full control over.
