While I agree with not mocking people, I'm not certain that this is a guaranteed net win for the project and that blocking might (I say might) be appropriate. Personally, economic incentives have very little to do with why I work on Debian. Fundamentally, if I was here for the money, Debian couldn't afford me. While I understand the desire to build up the economic system around FOSS so that more people can afford to participate more, but there's also a risk that if participation is monetized, those who aren't here for the money will be demotivated.
