I'm irked

There's a saying, "You can please some of the people ALL of the time, but you can't please ALL of the people ALL of the time" -pdxguy just might be one of them.
(is there a disclaimer that says...this site is free and will always stay true to past OS X?...I must have missed that one...) < sarcasm

Why not look at this as an opportunity for some individual to start their own website and call it Pre-Panther Hints..or something like that? Then you can spend all your time away from family, friends, hobbies, etc, and work at the subscription model, and BBS forum moderation and finally, coding for 10.2.x.

Personally-I left MacFixit for the reason of a rude and ignorant forum moderator. And that Ted sold his stake to VT (even though Ted Landau still contributes). What once started out as a community that contributed to the success of the site (but no $ reward), has now gone to subscription model. After a curt but assertive argument that many of us had contributed much to its success, our reward was a year subscription and renewal *if* we continue to get our tips posted.
But the forum moderator made a comment that still irks me to this day. (not quoting it as its pending libel)
So I can see leaving here. I can understand how it can upset one.
But I tend to sympathize with Rob- it doesn't make sense from efficiency standpoint. Perhaps pdxguy might want to do the coding and post it for rob?

RANT-I recommend that folks that support Apple, should do so by purchasing new systems and staying up to date with OS. And support websites that go the extra mile (and not rumor sites) to help the community.
