OMG, get over yourself.  Take it in the spirit it was offered and quit
being a jerk.  I thought that a big discount might be of interest (it
certainly was to me), I had nothing to gain from it and was trying to
save some fellow Linuxers a few bucks.  The intent of the original post
was to be helpful.

sad life to lead if you have to make yourself feel better by flaming
someone for trying to do something nice.
