Voluntary donations

I've just seen a post in the ConsumerWatch forum click here ...and I thought " How many people actually donate"

A lot of Helproom users use(and recommend) Spybot. How many of you have actually donated? I must admit that I use it and have not paid a penny. I'm not being judgemental here, just curious.

There are a number of freeware prog writers in a similar position as PepiMK, Javacool and merjinn If we don't donate we may find they have to go where the money is :-(.

Gladiator Antivirus has ceased, the writer snapped up by an AV software house.
I notice the latest release of JV16 is now paid for version.

Perhaps we should support the little guys more than we do.

There is another side to this, what if you and others subscribe, and then find that the writer has done a disappearing act to another company and closed the site, but I suppose this a chance we all take with any softwear weather paid for or free.
