I think the place to start from -- the first thing that needs to be said -- is that drugwash was trying to help and improve the program. And that furthermore, he was making the non-trivial effort share his improvements in a respectful way with the author (our wonderful skwire) and the rest of us.
So in my humble opinion, the first thing that needs to be said to drugwash is "thank you".
After that, it's skwire's right to ask that drugwash not share/post modified versions of his software. I can understand why that would be disappointing to drugwash, who was just trying to contribute some improvements to a program he obviously likes.
Most of the people on this site are fans of open source software -- coding and using it. Many of the coders here release some, if not all, of their source code as open source and participate in open source software. People who are sharing their programming skills here on this site are doing so largely because of the enjoyment we get in having others use our software. But many of us here also have some software which we have, for various reasons, decided not to open source. For whatever reason, it is ultimately the coder's prerogative.
Anyway, this is just my long way of saying to drugwash that I (we) appreciate the good deed you were trying to do, and don't want you to walk away with bad feelings about this -- rather I hope you will stick around and continue to participate, offer improvements of other sorts, and feel welcome here. We are nothing if not a home for unusual people with unusual skills
