Life is a process. Historically, the pressures were strictly survivalist. Now? To me and a great many like minded, survival means a good deal more than our next meal. So instead of seeking to drive humanity down and out, how about joining those of us trying to pull the least of us out of the muck?
I'll let myself out.
Deep breath. Exhale.
Do I even need to point out that this kind of thing hurts the perception of Open Source developers and by extension Open Source software? Then again, it's about time we have a term to replace the horribly racist "Indian Giver [wikipedia.org]" term. "MySQLGiver" maybe? "Open Source Giver"?
You're right. Such an egregious abuse could never happen with closed source software. *cough*Skype*cough*
