This is such an awesome comment on the story – EXACTLY!

On the story of the The Winklevosses Vs. Silicon Valley | TechCrunch

Menlo Ventures partner Shervin Pishevar gave a longer explanation on Quora,

“If the Winklevii had spent all their time and energy competing with Facebook in the arena of the marketplace rather than in the confines of the courtroom, we here in Silicon Valley would have had more sympathy and respect regardless of whether they had failed or succeeded. If you want our respect, gear up and enter the arena of entrepreneurship and be willing to die and battle for your idea to win the hearts and minds of those in the stands. The users who vote with their time, money and passion count here- nothing else. No court order or settlement can give you the legitimacy and honor that hundreds of millions of users can. Merit matters more. Always.”
