Obviously I classify Phil and Trish as people, not a synthetic legal entity.
However, the announcement was for a Pugski party. My understanding is that Pugski is a commercial entity - seemingly created to compete with epic. If someone can authoritatively tell me it is being run as a non-profit of some flavor, I will say thank you for the education and humbly eat crow. Truly.
However, *if* the party is to fire up energy for Pugski as a commercial site/brand competing with epic, I'd rate that as less than classy given the complete context.
Again, just my view given my read on this. YMMV And I am happy to be educated if I am off base wrt actual facts.
If someone tells me that they are involved in a "non-profit" group, rightly or wrongly, I immediately suspect that getting government grants (i.e. taxpayer's money) is part of their agenda and I am against it. I am much more comfortable supporting a viable commercial venture that provides value and can only exist by being relevant, as opposed to inefficient NGOs who are at their best spending other people's money, not their own.
