Do something else for a living then. As already pointed out, when one starts creating art for the sake of making money, the art tends to be worthless. As a band, we publish all our own vinyl/tapes/CDs, all the albums are available for free online, and we encourage duplication of all of our work. Do something else for a living, make music for the sake of music.

PC World make a lot of money providing malware / virus removal for non-tchies, selling anti-virus software and more importantly, selling new computers to people whose old computers have slowed down due to misuse, rather than cleaning them up.

It's not really in their interest for people to use more secure browsers.

Why bother voting when the result is the same?

Money is the root of all wealth.
