  I publish my actual mailbox and I read mail that arrives in it because
  I appreciate the private aside that is often so crucial to effective
  communication between two people.  However, I do not appreciate it
  when people use private e-mail to attack me.  Attacks should be out in
  the open so everybody can see.  Personal mail exchanges are there for
  the benefit of people who would like to /think/ and would like to do
  so privately before publishing their unfinished thoughts.  In keeping
  with this spirit, I share his inappropriate private communication.

I didn't.  If something is free and doesn't do the job, I just decline.
If something costs money and doesn't do the job, I look for a product
that does.

I think you have a listening / reading comprehension problem.  And your
ideologies are both pretentious and stupid.

  The astute reader will have noticed that I gave this crippled mind the
  option of a graceful recovery, but he chose to attack and is obviously
  the kind of person who has yet to understand the purpose of publishing
  the means of private communication.

  I strongly urge people to make note of this person's name and company
  and to share it with as many people as possible to prevent him from
  having any business success at the expense of the friendly, helpful
  USENET community whom he abuses for no discernible reason.
