In an earlier post, David and Goliath Comparisons, LEA on two occasions has communicated with me privately and taken offense with something i said, "LEA is nothing." Let's look at the context.
[2016/10/22 14:50]  SaveMe Oh: the real fight is between small me and the big dictatorship of LEA
[2016/10/22 14:50]  SaveMe Oh: so we don't need metaphors
[2016/10/22 14:50]  Lemonodo Oh: i don't see any comparison
[2016/10/22 14:50]  Lemonodo Oh: lea is nothing
[2016/10/22 14:50]  Lemonodo Oh: u r something
[2016/10/22 14:51]  SaveMe Oh: I know myself, but for the the drama it is the fight between me and them
[2016/10/22 14:51]  Lemonodo Oh: but i see what u r getting at now
[2016/10/22 14:51]  Lemonodo Oh: it is much the same as u say
[2016/10/22 14:51]  SaveMe Oh: They decide what is good for us and who are the chosen ones
[2016/10/22 14:52]  SaveMe Oh: so let me occupy this place
[2016/10/22 14:53]  SaveMe Oh: you don't have a clue anyway what to do with the sim
[2016/10/22 14:53]  Lemonodo Oh: of course
[2016/10/22 14:53]  SaveMe Oh: haha
[2016/10/22 14:54]  SaveMe Oh: growing virtual grass
[2016/10/22 14:57]  Lemonodo Oh: i'm not enough of an art admin to figure this out on my own and feel a little like don quixote tilting at windmills over this but publish this conversation and let's see where it goes
Something that could be conflated as saying a sponsoring institution is nothing was originally prefaced with the advice there is no comparison.  There isn't a comparison.  The institution has tremendous power around virtual real estate, far beyond many private estate owners.  However, in art movements, it has no agency in comparison with the agency of a single artist, nor should it have, though it does seem to be in the business of policing for various good reasons. Thus the lines of propriety blur.
