Hmmmm.

Someone writes software that requires a bit of giggery-pokery to work. Someone else writes a helpful tutorial.

The software author refuses to be involved because the helper wont pull a webpage. Is PN in favour of internet sensorship? As long as it is not libelous then I don't see the problem.

And in any case the software is not finished to a usable standard. No surprise there then.

I've seen this before on RO-land. If they cant get rid of their ego's then the paltform is better off without them. I bet this silly attitude has driven more people away than the loss of one programmer ever has.
