Whoa, I missed this the first time around. You don't think this? Why not? Clearly it takes a certain amount of work to come up with a design, and additional work to create instructions for that design, especially for something as complex and difficult as the AC. Why isn't it ethical for someone to attach a dollar value to that work?
Because it's just a MOC at the end of the day. Many people share instructions/how to builds of their MOCs, but they don't ask cash for it, just to give them credit where credit is due if you ape their design. Idunno, it's not necessarily a reasonable argument, and 'ethical' may have been a hyperbole on my part, but still, the idea rubs me the wrong way.
