javascript vi

John Cappiello pointed me at this really pretty excellent vi-in-javascript thinger that lets you use an extremely vi-like interface to edit a textarea.

Here’s what gets me, though. Look at the domain:

http://gpl.internetconnection.net/vi/

I mean, you can name your host whatever you want, but it’s either a big coincidence or quite disingenuous:

This editor is a copyrighted application.

If you want to use this editor in your own site, simply buy a
web or email hosting account at http://internetconnection.net/ or
call us at 888-xxx-yyyy

and:

/* no particular redistribution rights are granted;

   that means you do not have the right to use this on
   your own web site.

   this may change in the future.
