Not that I'm arguing for or against the particular forum in question,
but... since when is making 'money contrary to the spirit of using open
source software'?

Perhaps I should reword that. Having ads for commercial products, including Microsoft Office, have no place on a site supporting an open source product. I will not provide support on a site that uses that method to raise money.

Being contrary to the spirit of making money is being contrary to the
spirit of life itself
Bullshit. Making money has nothing to do with the spirit of life.

Who are the 'those' people you are referring to? What label are you trying to pin on me in order to insult me?

What makes you think I believe I'm entitled to the fruit of other people's labour?
