I am *sick* of that assimilation of people against dunc-tank being those
who feel DDs can't be paid. Just stop the FUD.

I've never seen anyone on any mailing list have anything against
developers being paid by HP or Progeny - and an entity like HP manages
much more money than dunc-tank.
I've seen, though, people opposed to a project leader using his
notoriety as such to raise funds among DDs to pay people he chose.
