I had the same reaction. It is, to my mind, the height of chutzpah to 
complain about things one receives for free. It is a delusion to think 
that a contribution to a kickstarter 3 years ago is still funding 
current development.

The team needs a steady source of income to continue development into 
the future. If only 1/4 of the user base is paying for that then 
development will slow or founder. I am amazed and grateful for the work 
the team has done on such slim resources provided by only a fraction of 
the user base. They should be receiving accolades.
