I agree with trogggy that, in this instance it's more of a cock-up on their part. Nothing more, nothing less.
There was a time where the amount of false claims of misdoings by TVA formally "XBMCHUB" was larger than actuality. I, like you @FXB78 tried to keep things grounded to facts.
If there is one thing I've learned over the years... its that ALL of the negative attention and "hate" towards TVA was spawned by their actions.
Here are a few facts you're missing:
TVA had ample opportunity to start clean when XBMC turned into Kodi, They could have forked Kodi, renamed it and Never mentioned "Kodi".
Instead, for selfish reasons they use the name... created misleading articles and a web design similar to Kodi... All in an attempt to steal/con users away from the real project.
TVA has repeatedly cried foul, posting in these forums claiming to "Support Kodi" yet every suggestion on how they could ACTUALLY help by not using the Kodi TM is ignored.
TVA is single handedly responsible for dragging the Kodi name through the mud. Every news article, every post confusing Kodi for illegal pirated streams is because of TVA... This is fact!
TVA is a group of hypocrites, They are... against Box sellers as long as they are not selling boxes, against "Builds" as long as it's not their build, against "YouTubers" as long as it's not their channel.
and the WHOPPER!
Out of all the misdealing, shady things they have done, blah blah... TVA is the ONLY group to be caught pushing Malware to its users through their plugins on MULTIPLE occasions.
Honestly not sure why any Kodi users would defend this group...
