I don’t see how you square the circle of this being a polite request.
Michael Pinnegar

You missed the part that made it polite: he prefaced the threat with “We don’t mean to be a dick about it,” …

The person hiding the request behind trademark threats was either ignorant of trademark or deceitful. They just wanted to create a npm package called ‘kik’ and decided that they could use more than just a polite request to get it done.

I just can’t get over the irony that kik (the company+service) got hit by the shrapnel of their own grenade too.
