not really a question or anything here, just going to vent some steam
most of my time i spend helping people one way or another, and i rarely ask for anything in return (ie money). I feel that knowledge should be free.
All i ask for is the recognition that I
have helped them ...and a kind thank you. nothing more, nothing less.
And it seems even this is too much for some people.
It just angers me so much that you do things for people and they take it for granted. Or even have the cheek to tell people THEY did it.
Sometimes i just think ...why should i bother next time they want help.
I know you guys on here arent like this (otherwise you wouldnt be on a help forum)
i guess this kind of applies to the open source world as well....with people creating code, and some evil ones stealing it and changing it slightly then claiming rights to it and selling it.
any of you have opinions on the matter?
