I do not care how amazing your textures are. I do not care how perfect they look for the icons I am making right now. If you put them in a password protected .rar and make me comment to ask for the password, I will not! I refuse to jump through hoops to feed your ego. And I know I'm not alone in this. So think on that the next time you password your shit.
