I see no reason a person can not be allowed to make a living at somthing they are good at and love to do. I mean should we expect folks to go to work and not get paid?

I have given over 11 years to skinning, from helping develop one of the "at it's time" top 3 most popular desktop customization programs, to skinning, to moderation and community support, all without asking for a dime, and I do not feel I

I applaud those who can succeed at doing something they love and can make a living from it.

Seriously tho. Why hold a grudge against those who can do..
