Default Conundrum about peoples approaches

Why is it that we are so concerned to sell our souls to save a dollar rather than support the honest efforts of others?

Let me explain myself ...

Through this forum and others I frequent, the majority of people are growing businesses and starting new ones. This is great to see and all power to you.

In one breath many are seeking to find out how to sell more products, articles, services and in addition at higher prices if possible.

In the other breath they seek all sort of soltuions to assist this growth for no cost.

Yes it human nature to try and get a great deal or pay nothing. But when you pay nothing and give the provider of that service your contact details to sell to others and allow them access to your online details in return, what are we thinking.

I'm not talking big dollars either. In another forum a piece of software for sale for $20 was put down as site xyz gave a similiar product away. There was a huge variation in value for a measly $20. The free product had spyware included .... but hey it's free.

Back to my original question.

Why is it that we are so concerned to sell our souls to save a dollar rather than support the honest efforts of others (like ourselves)?
