Re: A pity
His point, which I think you're still missing, is that people might be interested in giving your software a look, crediting you (most people in the OS community will), and even giving you mention. But he (and others) are kept from even assessing the code's worth by sites like PHPClasses.
I write PHP for a living, and NEVER use nor recommend their site. If you have a valid piece of code you want to share openly, why bother with sites like that? You could have the cure for cancer in code form, but I and many others will skip over it because we DON'T HAVE THE TIME and DON'T WANT THE SPAM (from you OR PHPClasses' advertisers)!
