First of all, I realize you are passionate GIMPshop/GIMP user and I do
appreciate that. But you seem to be making a horrible lot of debatable

Downloads of Gimpshop really skyrocketed, thus proving the viability
and deer need for a product like this.

With free software that has no "phone back" feature you have no way to
estimate if downloaded software is used at all or if there's a hype
going on. Hence viability of GIMPshop is merely a speculation. The
same applies to GIMP as well.

A product that not only can knock Photoshop off it's throne, but that
could get rid off Photoshop's dominance and arrogance alltogether.

I think I can freely speak for the majority of the team here: we do
not define GIMP as a project that aims to dethrone Photoshop. You are
of course at liberty to disagree with our project vision.

You would think the Gimp society would have picked up on this,
however it never happened. Million's of people are still waiting for the
miracle to happen again.

The reason it never happened is because noone cares enough to go ahead
and do that. So much for "millions" of people waiting for a miracle.

We should recognize this need and use it to our advantage, instead
of ignoring it.

By all means, please go ahead and fork GIMP :)
