I've been using them for years, really disturbing

Just take a look at the bio of the sites founders and you'll wonder why nobody spoke up against this long ago.

I have been fully aware of the fact that Sefaria  isnt founded/run by people שרוח חכמים נוחה מהם, yet I use it as a resource, in a similar way that the JTS library and even church libraries have been used. I rarely use English translations.

There is a similar (though I believe not as extensive) site/app that is run by שומרי תומ"צ, but the name of it escapes me at the moment.

Isnít שאין? I think you have an extra negative

Did you mean this site: https://mechon-mamre.org/?

Correct. Fixed. I guess that's what happens when one over contemplates the wording and goes back and forth on a phone screen.

Alhatorah.org?

Indeed. That's is the one I had in mind.

There's a difference between a library run by non-ehrliche yiden. The גמרא is the same print as is in beis hamedrish. And sefurim that were printed by those.
Although I used various libraries I'd never touch a sefer that was published dy JTS.

As it happens, over the years there had been a number of sforim they printed written by mainstream talmidei chachomim.

Quotes in a signature is annoying, as it comes across as an independent post.

I guess their arbitration clause backfired this time. But this isolated case has no legal bearing as precedence as it wasnít ordered by a court.
