This topic has been summarized and can be found here: https://craftbuzz.net/2017/01/27/the-price-to-pay-free-versus-paid-plugins/ Spoiler I'm not here to start a flame war. I just want some responses to the question: do you prefer paid or free plugins? I'm not looking for basic responses like "I like free plugins because they are free." I want detailed arguments on both sides. Disclaimer: this is to collect information for an upcoming article on my Minecraft News blog regarding Free and Paid addons in the Minecraft universe. I am not trying to start a debate.
