There was a fellow on IRC a few weeks ago arguing that someone should hand
over their entire site to him so he could use it to learn from. His argument
is he shouldn't have to go through all the work of figuring it out for
himself when others have already done it and he can just look at what they
did. Some folks just place no value on other peoples' time.

I've spent hundreds of hours on my modules. It's mostly satisfying and I
enjoy making something that other people use. But there are days when I
wonder why I'm giving all my time away for free. When folks come around and
demand that I give even more for free, I can have a pretty short fuse. LOL
