I've put in a fair bit of effort in the past to help Dr. Corbet and was ``rewarded'' by him heaping abuse and complaints on me (see the ``ANAGNORESIS'' thread).
FWIW, I don't believe he subscribes, so the only missives which he'll receive are those which were directly addressed to him, which seems to only be the helpful ones.
I sent this off-list, but am not ashamed to publicly make a statement re: Dr. Corbet's being a person who ``deserves to pay for support'':
Well yes, but not LaTeX support. Dr. Corbet is the first person to make me retract my statement that I wouldn't wish Microsoft Word on even an enemy --- I do now wish that he'd give up on LaTeX and switch to Microsoft Word --- he's the only person I know of that deserves that sort of misery.
And I regret having been helpful to his initial queries on this list.
