You didn't piss on anyones knee. Oh, maybe in this mail you did. Not mine

Don't say you didn't! :) I'm sure you know more about... well, you surely 
know more about the debial-legal list now than you used to!

I don't know about the masses outside (can't see them from my window, you 
know) but my health is not really affected. If yours is, by all means, 
release bin only.

Wow. You've really had to deal with some ill-tempered users, haven't you? 
That's sad, really. However, if I may, I think that if you're looking for 
users that can provide constructive critisism and even patches, true open 
source/free software licensing is brilliant. Binary only, closed source or 
something else would not be as good.

But alas, it's your call completely. Granted, proprietary software can have 
advantages for some folks. It made Bill Gates the richest man in the world.
