That's just the thing. You people aren't referring to the creator. You're using hte public domain to rationalize your tantrums.
I tell them to get Xtreme Beginnerz or The Art of Card Manipulation. But maybe that's because I'd rather the kids learn from real pros rather than an acne-riddled skeleton sitting in front of his webcam.
You get what you pay for.
But it's his choice what to do with them. He decided to teach them for free rather than charge for them because he created them. That's his prerogative, and it is not your or my place to tell everyone else to do the same thing for the sake of our convenience.
I don't buy the public domain argument. Lots of the flourishes you probably know are technically in the public domain, but it's a safe bet that you forked over cash for them at some point.
No, all I see here is typical magician overreaction to an imagined transgression.
Saying i'm having tantrums is completely unnecessary, I have not made this personal and have never insulted you. I am happy to discuss this with you but there's no need to try and trivialise people's arguments with stuff like this.
Kevin Ho is not an 'Acne ridden skeleton' and is as much of a pro as De'vo and Jerry Cestkowski. If somebody is referred to Kevin Ho's cuts they will be able to try them and see if they actually enjoy flourishing before spending money on a DVD. I would never suggest Youtube as an alternative to XB or The System, simply a starting point.
As for the Kevin Ho cuts, you seem to have missed my point. I was saying it is in no way unethical to refer people to his cuts as you seemed to suggest it was.
I have the System and The Trilogy which largely contain original moves not found elsewhere, so I disagree with this. Of coure a couple of public domain moves will be incorporated but most of it is original.
