There's a difference between art and tools released for the public.
Art, excepted of the crap on the radio, should not suit to anything.
A tool, even if it's for free as in beer, needs some quality. For
example, if I build a power supply for somebody for free, this person
can't expect that I fulfill all imaginable uses, e.g. for somebody who
needs it for a Tattoo machine, I won't provide balanced voltage, but it
could be used with the bikes battery and mains. What I fulfil is
security, if she/he should hang ab the tattoo machine on the bikes
handlebars no short will destroy anything, if the mains are used, nobody
getting tattooed will get an electric shock. If I build a power supply
just for my self, not for anybody else, I can ignore some security
things, because I know what I do with this power supply. I even could
use banana jacks instead of a Schuko jack to connect to the mains.

Why the double standards?
