I never saw the sense in trying to sell an application designed to format a plain text e-mail that arrives in your inbox free.

This appears to be one of those cases where the designers in question misunderstand the value of releasing free software to the community. If this had been given away free from the beginning, it would have had a substantially beneficial effect on the Mac community's goodwill in its perception of him, most likely boosting his reputation (or "whuffie," as the erstwhile ranter Cory Doctorow might put it).

Trying to charge $10 for this functionality is just SAD.
