    eh, calling it a scam is a bit harsh. they seemingly had the best intentions, but over-promised and under-delivered.

      Outside of tech bubble land, when somebody takes money from customers and then doesn't deliver on their promises, most would call it fraud.

      We're not talking about VC's who put money into this company with the hopes that one day it might deliver. We're talking about the normal people like you and I just paying upfront for a service we were promised. Customers do not assume the same burden of risk as investors. It's why we have laws against deceptive advertising practices.

      Whether or not the founders had "good intentions" (delusions of actually making their fantasy a reality) is irrelevant. The end result is the same. Customers were lied to.
