When I joined CGsociety, I was under the missaprehension it seems, that your reason for being was to bring together the CGI community.
Now, I get an offer of ‘free’ stuff which is first of all an ‘LE’ or ‘Light Edition’ I.E., crippleware designed to waste my time looking at it so that I might purchase the FULL version later and second of all not associated to my professional useage day-to-day.
Id rather pay 10 times the fee and not have blatant sales directed at my busy enough life.
CGSOC has been a source of amazing symbiosis which this latest extension to crass profit has not looked well against. Sorry guys , I just dodnt see CGSOC as in this mode. A freebie from time to time associated with the news letter is one thing but, this is just plain and simple a bastardisation of a great potentialy important profesional soc.
Nothing against the software just didnt like being spammed by my prof soc.

including my email because I am that upset about it.
