I'd like to hear other people's thoughts on this... I'm not quite sure what I think.

In my mind, using WebAssist tools should be a sign of quality. This argument seems to imply that using WebAssist extensions is somehow a bad thing.

WebAssist tools, like any others, can only really sing in the hands of someone that knows how to use them. Just because someone can google and find out where you got your tools doesn't mean they could easily replace you or reproduce your result.

What is the negative consequence you anticipate if you had a folder named webassist? Anonymity is not a goal here at webassist, as you can imagine, so making in a change for the sake of anonymity doesn't make much sense. We want to spread the word about webassist, not keep it a secret.

However, making sure our users are successful is a goal, so I'm trying to get an angle on how this would effect yours and your customer's success. All things being equal we would like to get our name out, not keep people from finding it, but I'll continue to listen to and carefully consider any arguments like this.

The flip-side of having a webassist directory so that if someone abandons their client their client will be able to find us or find another developer that is familiar with our tools is the counter-argument for when anonymity can cause issues and prevent adoption.

I'm not sold either way, but I'm inclined to not change the course at this point. I'm happy to listen to other opinions or angles and am open to changing. I'm just not convinced since I see pros and cons to each approach.
