I mean, I understand that as much as anyone, I think. The problem is the
intent and the implied hierarchy.

In other words: Why do I want to play nice with someone who tries to set
me up with a legal gag after I spend time helping them?

Generally, I don't want to help with that dynamic and while an NDA is
rarely worth the paper it is written on, the spirit is the offensive
part of the entire ordeal.

All the best,
