Speaking for myself only: Please don't be rude to other list members.
This behavior is unnecessary, unhelpful, and unwelcome.

Frankly, that is not true. Your need does not instill responsibility in
others simply because they are able to meet it. Where you have a need,
*you* have a responsibility to meet it. If you need software, you can
meet that responsibility by paying for the software, or by participating
in its development (for example).
How you meet that need is entirely your decision. However, making
demands of people who offer their labor for free creates a toxic
community. Please don't do that. When you make exchanges in life, you
are free to negotiate the terms of that exchange before it is made.
When you receive something without making an exchange in return, the
thing you've received is a gift, and nothing more.
