@alanralph I had originally bought it because I wanted to support more development of sublime text. I remember talking to someone else and they thought they were clever for using it without paying. I understand we're not all made of money, but we were both in the tech industry and expecting people to pay us for our software. I mean, it just came off as really unaware.
I think I'm in the same boat as wanting to not do what everyone else is doing. But it gets really hard to swim upstream sometimes.
