I agree, but I guess I stopped reading the other thread when it got
heated to the point that you branched off into this one?

Personally, I have no problems paying for this library, except that
right now I don't have a job, so it will have to wait until I get a
new one.

What the attitude is with some Linux users, I don't know... Someone
flipped on me because I accept donations at to help
pay for the site fees and whatnot (I haven't actually received any
donations, but that's besides the point). They said I started the site
for the love of money and that they would not be supporting me. Oooook
