Dilemma


I just received this in email:

"While your motives may be pure, I could lose what little consulting work I have if this gets produced--and since my husband (a journalist) has been out of work for 4 years, and I make less at my full-time teaching job than I did right out of college 20 years ago--I beg you to reconsider offering products for free. It doesn't help people, it only hurts them. Without my consulting income, we run out of money by the 15th every month."

I've never felt so conflicted in my life. Comments on this are most welcome.
