The other amazing thing about the ungratefulness of this community is 
that SuSE is held to a different standard than OpenBSD, which also 
doesn't provide ISO images for free.  Not only does nobody have a major 
problem with that, but if you exercise your right to provide them 
yourself, you get flamed.

You can't have it both ways, folks.  Either it's wrong when Theo does 
it, or it's right when SuSE does it.
