I think Barnum said it best 'There's no such thing as bad publicity'. TB's most successful promotion was a youtube video of PES2012 being loaded on 3.55. The hate on the dongle probably led to just as many customers as praise would have.
I dont remember G Chok conditioning anything when he released his works, obviously someone was going to attempt to advance the PS3 with it. You seem to know alot about the workings of True Blue, and Im sure you have a backup of GRaf's bible-- why didnt you release a free version of the dongle?
