No problem, just give me a few days and after I fork over a $1k plane ticket I'll be right over.
Great. The ROI will be well worth it.
"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
I donate when courtesy and respect is shown. Which is more than most people that have never paid. Maybe that's not important to you, but it is to me.
As far as not using it, it's part of their business model to be free and then pester the people who will succumb to the pressure. I did not ask them to make it free, and I do not think it's right for them to ignore the wishes of their users just because of it. It's called harassment.
If they change their model to disallow it being "free" then I will not use it.
Did you read my original post or just skim it? I've tried unsubscribing from their mailing list more than once when it came to asking me for money, but I still get emails. That's where the annoyance came in.
I have the same thing happening with an extended warranty on my wife's car. They keep calling me telling me this is my last chance to purchase this extended warranty. Sometimes I play along, other times I tell them I'm hanging up before I get irate.
Yes, I've told them to take my number off the list and that I have added my number to the do not call list. Doesn't seem to phase them.
I just had an idea for the next time they call, I'm going to start wailing and moaning. I'll get control of myself and tell them that I no longer own the car because it was totaled in the wreck that killed my wife. That would be a big lie both are doing very well.
They seem to contact me once a year. I make a (small) donation.
Maybe if I didn't donate, they would nag me as well. Then, I would set a message filter in my mail agent and be done with it.
Then again, that would remove a rant or so.
Slow day in the lounge
Arguing with a woman is like reading the Software License Agreement. In the end, you ignore everything and click "I agree".
