Friendly messages on the list reach a very tiny proportion of the
users... I suspect most of them don't even know that this list exists.
The product isn't any less free... we still do most of our work on
public repositories that anyone can download and compile, and we still
accept patches from anywhere. The difference is the builds that we make
and support will have one small change in them, which amounts to little
more than a gentle reminder.
