Please note that I have been out of the loop with Minecraft for over 2 years (after running servers since 2010). I left after Microsoft took over the helm and Bukkit shut down. I can count the number of times I have been to Bukkit, Spigot and the MinecraftForum in that time on one hand. But I ask you all today, is the end of the road near? I came back expecting to see Bukkit refreshed and Dinnerbone dropping updates like crazy, and it still looks like a morgue. It's depressing, honestly, and then when you have threads like this that seem to suggest Mojang is cracking down on servers in general, I don't know if I should get back in the business. Is it worth it? Is MC really dying? Or will there be a future when servers start to come back as a result of a rescindment of this disastrous DMCA take down?
