Yes, I know you're not on the JED Team
What you have to realize is that the person who you just quoted (mlipscomb) is the same person who did the *opposite* of the first sentence that you just quoted (see link above in my last post). So quoting something like that doesn't hold much weight, if any at all.
As to the interest, it's about doing what's right! HikaShop Starter was removed the first time from the JED for 30 days because Hikashop had parts of the description which were talking about features of the Essential and Business edition. That's the first time they were notified by the JED that there was a problem with HikaShop Starter. After correcting the description and the 30 days were past, HikaShop Starter was republished on the JED. That was in May.
This time, HikaShop Starter was unpublished and their user account suspended 3 months and 1 week ago (end of June) FOR A RULE THAT'S NOT IN THE TOS. Looking at their extension listing, the same problem is displayed as before. However, their extension description only contains features from the starter edition as stated earlier by Hikashop. Also, Hikashop earlier in this discussion stated that concerning the account suspension they were notified by the JED that the reason was that they propose other extensions not licensed under the GPL. Even though that's not in the TOS, Hikashop has now obliged to the all-mighty demands.
In sum, they've been suspended for 3 months and 1 week for a rule that's non-existant in the mutually agreed upon terms of service, so essentially the JED Team did a bait-and-switch and by doing so violated their own TOS. Now Hikashop has gone above and beyond to meet the hidden rule.
Something needs to be fixed here...
To God through Jesus Christ be the glory forever and ever!
