Default Better to be silent than remove all doubt, or read more.

It's not paying to access Daemon Forums, it's enabling greater access to the forum.


Tapatalk is a forum client. It does to forums what a newsreader does for usenet. The difference is, unlike what the authors of newsreaders like Gnus, slrn, or knode chose: the authors of Tapatalk decided to sell their client.

I didn't write the progam, so I can't complain if they choose to sell it as a product, and it works well enough and costs little enough that I will leave creating a better program that is both Free and *[b]hopefully[/]* Open Source, to someone with more economical or political interest in filling every niche with either (or both). I prefer OSS when possible.
