With summer coming up, I don't think free time is a concern to some. It's not like they're trying to bring back exactly the same way it was when it closed.. There's always going to be that limit but I still think it's possible to do at no additional cost.. Even if that meant going to the extent as some have attempted and trying to recreating VMK.
However, I agree with you. I don't believe Apeman has enough understanding to host VMK. He doesn't realize that the files are only a fraction of the necessities needed for VMK. It is illegal but so is all the Habbo retros. It's not like they care (I'm pretty sure everyone knows that using someone else' work = illegal).
I for one am not interested in playing VMK again but I'll continue to monitor some of these sites to see how it all unfolds.
