...the only thing you care about is $. The guy makes free stuff. Shares with us. Not a spammer or anything, he does post by hand, reads the responses and replies back. And you shut him down because he does not pay for posting. The way I see it, when you have no users here, you should be paying us for creating the content here, not the other way around.
