I think you may not be capable of assessing competence. You are feeding back to me some hype nonsense from a bankrupt company that is trying to raise another round to get the same software running for the same ten years. Sure I am foolish to not interview developers who quit maidsafe or were "fired"... sure I am foolish to not ask the tough questions about the architecture and just drink the "kool-aid" of maidsafe company.
Maybe you're saying these things you might be well invested in maidsafe and think its still going to happen and that it isn't a long shot even still (impossibility) and you should probably run from here and back to the other website where people will caress your back and remind you to fall in line and just realize that there is a magical man in the sky gonna make it all right for you.
If you're trying to remind me of something based on the dev update of maidsafe then you don't have competence to judge anything about these things.
Last point, if by MAID network you mean nothing like is described in the past, sure you can store info to digital ocean and guess what, you can also do email through email, btw there is nothing secure or reliable about this maid mail application at all But it's hard to prove right you have to wait and see if you're going to be alive still when it's "lunched".
Or use "our" discourse instance to use internal mailing on the forum!
