i wonder how many donated ?
there weren't many responses in this
Most of the forum diehards donated and the InVue ads were removed for a month or two. Since then, we haven't gotten any donations. Everyone wants something for free.
I think a reminder might be in order.
I wouldn't say people expect everything in real life to be free, but you can expect nearly everyone in this field thinks nearly EVERYTHING should be free on the net. Not directed towards anyone here in particular (well, maybe hox, but he advertises it) but I would guess 99% of consumer CD/DVD burners out there are pirates in one form or the other.
Thus justifying what I like to call the "leecher's mentality" (I'm just a lowley user, noone will mind that I never pay for software, leech all day without sharing anything, and absolutely refuse to pay for anything virtual besides my internet and newsgroup bill [and even that I'll try to dick around with my ISP]).
Sad but more than likely true. Much props to you Ian (and rest of CDRLabs crew). I go nowhere else for my burner reviews
