A lot of to discuss and there is not enough time for all of this, sad but
true :(

Long story short, shall I reply that guy that we don't have or don't accept
any financial support at the moment? shall I come up with my own version of
a standard answer? so far, personally, I got one request regarding this
issue but for this request and others in future, what is the final and the
direct answer for that? I don't want to come up with my own just like that
... I understand what has been written here but again, no time to discuss
all that, all of us are busy and I see every time we open a discussion, it
takes long time and sometimes with no final answer :( I'm blaming NO ONE
here because I know for a fact why is that ... I just want to close this
and move on to the other stuff :)
