The now-redacted ending snarky comment in previous entry actually linked to the MovableType 3.0 announcement, thank you very much.
Having read some of the trackbacks to Mena's announcement, I decided to remove it so as not to get lumped in with the idiots.
I bought a license for the current version (or rather, donated and received a license), and plan to get one for the 3.0 release. Seems only fair.
And I'd prefer if the cheap bastards who don't want to pay for things would just up and say, "I'm a cheap bastard who doesn't want to pay for things," rather than delusionally taking some moral high ground. Then again, I'd prefer if people who don't want to be shot at would would admit that, rather than babbling about how a draft violates their deeply-held libertarian views.
There's nothing wrong with not wanting to be shot at. Can't say I enjoyed it myself.
Being a cheap bastard, well, the phrasing sort-of implies a moral judgement, doesn't it?
Keep in mind, this is coming from someone who donated to the developer of BitTorrent, but uses the program for the odd copyright violation. I don't even bother trying to reconcile that. . .
Some people would rather switch than bit-- complain excessively.
And list valid reasons for doing so, causing me to rethink my position somewhat. I hate when that happens.
Update: Bugger. Michelle (and the folks in her comments) are being all sensible and stuff too. Meaning more rethinking and possible disavowing of previous statements in this entry. I really hate when that happens.
Update 2: Oh, for Mike's sake.
