The buddy store pretty much obliterated the free use routines, and profiles. Hardly any one is making the crs or plugins, or whatever because they enjoy it, but now its because they want a cut of the pie. Not everyone is like that, but thats the way it is now. Even before the buddystore pretty much all the good stuff was paid for, but even then they had free available. Also there is a LOT less community help for the developers just more q.q.. but that is going to happen when people pay for the products. They automatically feel entitled.
