The point is: before the crowd funding began, his net worth was $6 million. He didn't liquidate to fund his project. He asked the 'net to fund his project. He is drawing a salary. That salary is from crowd funding...crowd funding that was not needed, based on the initial 'goal' on kickstarter, and, his own personal wealth (at that time). So, the question is this: how egregious is it to conduct oneself like this? I (personally) cannot think of anything more egregious than this. One director of a company to another. And yet (unless someone can correct me) I have not seen the original business plan that, the banks rejected and forced him to beg for the money from a large and passionate internet following from the 1990's, who seem to have terrible memories, and no interest in doing research before handing it over to a loser like this. Jus' saying.
