It has already been made clear that you're not required to distribute the modified source on the same network connection as the remote interaction.
That those debating against the AGPLv3 on this thread have such a weak case that they must argue that the cost to upload the source is burdomsome, given the existing cost associated with hosting that software for remote interaction and the cost of hardware to host it on, demonstrates to me that this debate is over.
Yes, it's absurd to ensure cooperation! The first point of the first
principle of cooperation is "voluntary".
Nobody is being forced to use the software, just as nobody is forced to become a member of a cooperative. Participation remains is voluntary.
How would that satisfy section 13? A CD isn't a network server.
It doesn't, (s)he was mistaken. Section 13 clearly reads that it must be hosted on a network server.
Don't forget hosting-users. Tomorrow you might be paying for uploads.
