Agreed. So, they're only sort of relevant to the discussion.

not only they removed all copyright notices from the pages but if you look at the page source they are hot linking all the images off instructables/autodesk servers.

Mr. Snowden called, he would have put up an ible had he not been annoyed with the SPAM in the forums this weekend.

Maybe this Airy08 could do a better job of rolling out new features and truly do QA on the user testing.
