When did I ever argue against that? I was suggesting a resource to use
to support your own software. I think you have assumed that I suggested
posting here about celementree was off-topic. Tell me where I ever said
that. I said to the first guy that he should ask the author for help,
meaning that he could get help that way as well. Furthermore, I believe
that is the more efficient way to get help, by contacting the author
directly, especially if that author is too lazy to set up their own
support forum or list.

Fredrik Lundh gets money via paypal on his site where his software is
located. That's what I meant. Where did I say this particular post is
a spam? Again, your ass? where do you get this shit?
