For each of those requests for source code I've simply ignored the emails - not out of rudeness but because I'm not looking to do other people's work for free, I'm extremely busy and often can't take out the amount of time people are asking me to donate.

Maybe in the future I'll be better at responding to emails but like Pete I will not respond to unsolicited emails asking for source code.

Thanks for the heads-up.
As much as I often too busy to reply I am happy that members can see my email address so I will leave my settings as they are. I'll ignore the requests for source code and I'll try to reply to the other nice people and then ultimately fail to reply because I never get around to it. :-)
