If I'm being honest, it didn't sit well with me at first. I wanted a representative example of what is currently available. Unfortunately, I wasn't told what I had received until after I had tested it and sent Matt some preliminary results. That bothered me because I didn't test what I intended and thought I was testing.
That said, nope. Ain't no one compensating me anything for this.
Man I feel for you. That really sucks!
I was going to wait for the review to be up before donating to your cause. But yeah donation incoming right now, as this maturity is commendable. I hope it has not burnt future bridges with the DIY community in general.
