I did. And I will repeat an earlier reply here because it didn't
reach everybody the first time:

Mark: apologies for writing my story in the (too short)
way that I did, you're comments are valid.
What I wrote are the facts, but I may have expressed
it too harshly.

I didn't. The article *is* published. And I don't care
about the money (I wrote the article at the time when PyZine had
a different form, there was no talk about any author payment
at that time). So again, it's not a big issue, I just wanted
to share my experience.

PS: everything has now been taken care of with PyZine.
