Peter: To be fair to Dan, I read his comment as a general one, reflecting the general "GPL means no-one gets paid" opinion that floats about. As an author, I'm sure that you're very protective of your work, and having someone question it's integrity is one of the most insulting that can happen. I'm also sure that very few people who read drobe actually realise how much time and effort it takes to write the articles that they read, and if they did then they would make sure that any comments they made were very carefully worded so that they couldn't be incorrectly interpretted. Unfortunarely for the author, the lack of this perfect situation brings the effort back to their door as all comments must be taken with at least a pinch of salt. Everyone has their bad days, author and reader alike, but the unfair side of it is that an author can end up undermining his or her work simply by their perceived attitude, whereas the reader can simply walk away.
