I have used Outfitter since I started playing the game, and it became one of those addons I relied on heavily and took for granted.What I'm trying to figure out is what exactly the developer hopes to accomplish by "protesting" and withdrawing the addon from download? Blizz doesn't use the addon. WE, the fellow WoW-playing community, do. Why make us suffer? What purpose does this serve, other than inconveniencing the player?

They are not just protesting. Some of the addons require heavy/constant maintenance. I'm sure Outfitter is not an exception. It might've been just a hobby for the author at first, but probably became more like a job as the time went on. I completely understand if the author wants to be rewarded for all the time he puts in developing. And when Blizzard says "We see and appreciate your contribution which was valuable (so much actually that we'll use your idea and design), but we are going to limit the ways you can get rewarded for all your hard work." To be honest, I would probably be offended too...
