No, you miss the point, as you have with every single post you've
made.  Who says you have to use it?  Who says you have to *pay* to use
it, even?  BTW, you never answered my question about which code *you*
contributed.  You must have, since you took a "pledge", right?  Take
your entitled foot out of *your* mouth, Robert, and grow up.  And stop
harassing me via private email, as well.

I'm done arguing with children.  Don't worry about responding to me,
because I can't read emails that have been deleted.
