There was a old russian saying in the lines of:
When you don't have raspberries, you drink tea from its leaves and say that it's good
My R4400/200Mhz tea is good
I am willing to help - but I have only gcc and little experience beyond "./compile && make && make install"

That is the only reason I could imagine (i.e. loss of wages) that would cause some one to dislike getting a thing for free.

IMHO, the beauty of open source is the ability to fix what's broken -- rather than a propriety blackbox I can't peer into. I expect very little work to be done for me and appreciate those who are willing to give away what they have learned in the past -- quality or kludge. I liken code to scientific research -- the engine behind it is the individual's claim to fame or the developer scratching a particular itch -- that's why research is freely published. Once someone does the dirty work it becomes "obvious" and the rest of us shouldn't be hampered by "intellectual property" rights from repeating their success.
Oh, and I don't get out very often.
