vtiger devs - that sucks.

IMHO Smackcoders are leaches. As far as I can tell they give little to 
nothing back to the community.

We have had a few customers use some of their extensions in the past 
(ones that are encrypted with ioncube and sold directly, not on the 
Marketplace) and our customers had many problems with poor quality and 
poor support from them.

When did Smackcoders produce a product called PDF Maker? (Marketplace ID 
= 359)

When did IT Solutions produce PDFMaker? (Marketplace ID = 14)

And since when are demo links a problem? In fact, yesterday you wouldn't 
accept one of our extensions because there was *NO* link to a demo???

I really think you guys need to get your priorities right.

I am in full support of Matus here.
