My last words, Mike (I'm sure that quite a few people will agree), there are excellent plugin authors who contribute their work for the simple pleasure of coding something useful for other users while there are others who don't and want something in return.
I don't want another "newsletter" from someone standing on his soapbox, preaching the virtues of money making opportunities which most blog users don't care about.
According to your comments, you don't seem to be happy with what other users (and a moderator) made on this thread and you also claim "The only word I hear on this forum is free, free, free.", tell me, how much did you have to shell out for WP?
Unfortunately, people reading this thread will either "patch" this plugin or try Moshu's solution, most people don't like having their email addresses end-up in some spammer's database.
Different strokes for different folks...
