Is your advice sound?  Yes.  Is your attitude poor?  Yes.  The guy would probably be perfectly happy to start without sponsorship, but he doesn't know any better, it appears.  You could have provided that same advice without pouncing on the guy.  Seriously, every time someone mentions the topic of sponsorship, advertising, making money in any way, etc, no matter how misguided, you've gone into a tirade.

I really like you, your work is awesome, and your rants crack me the hell up.  Your work has been invaluable to the community, but sometimes you really piss me off (yeah, I know, I do my fair share of pissing off too).  Thusly, I've answered with a Verdi-style rant in vlog.
