Man, this is classic gaslighting.
First off, no need to insert that you "miss John". So do others. You don't know me. This adds no value right here right now other than shining a light on yourself. Nice halo.
Secondly, I wrote that IF the process, as suggested, WAS "acquiring many well respected companies) but not doing much with them", that would be sad and I'd consider it hoarding or squatting. That's not entitled and ignorant of the current state of world affairs, as you're trying to frame me, it's just saying that if the previous accusation was true, then ...

I guess no good deed goes unpunished?
Asking them directly for comment on someone's theory isn't "punishment".
Where would Blacet be right now without Synthcube?
Maybe it would be available because someone with more time alotted to it had acquired it. Maybe not. You don't know, I don't know.
But I think we all might want to take a step back
Including you and your pathos and rhetoric.
and consider the last few years. It's been a *bit* of a unique situation.
For everyone. Businesses are shutting down left and right. But John died before that. And it only costs a few minutes to log on a forum and say something like twice a year. You, apparently, have a lot of time to post.
I am thankful that Synthcube is 'squatting' or 'hoarding' because if they weren't these products and companies would already be completely gone. With no hope -ZERO- of *ever* seeing them again. I'm not going to second guess anything they've felt the need to do to keep their own business afloat!
My fallacy alarm is going through the roof. Why do you claim they "would already be completely gone"? Do you have proof for that theory?
Many product lines have changed ownership in synth history. To use a couple examples that are close to John, Grant Richter handed his 1200 series to Malekko and his 300 series to Wessex Analogue. The transitions were smooth and successful, each in a different way. (Yeah, Malekko/ Darkplace have come under much criticism since, and some entitled sounding dude complained about Wessex recently, but my emphasis here is on the early years after transition.)
I wasn't bashing Synthcube nearly as much as your rant suggests, and the alternative to Synthcube isn't the desperate black hole of ubervanishing zeroness your rant suggests.
Please, drop the framing.

You do all realize the world situation is not normal right now? Still. And for the last few years too.
