I feel guilty. I flamed him on the two points Cedar mentions
and he kind of went off in a huff. He claimed that he wanted to
sell these boxes as a non-profit humanitarian act. However, all
indications were that he was more interested in refocusing
attention to his project name and himself than he was interested
in contributing to a collaborative project.
