|My assumption is that most of the users here either contribute substantially to some open source project, or at least use some open source stuff and take some time to send patches/bugs to the project.|
Why do you do it?
If you don't, then what stops you?
Not looking for should/shouldn't arguments here. Just curious about the general psychology of the decision.
What does it feel like? What kind of effect are you looking for? What motivates you to continue?
