True. There is a difference in the motivation of the giver. But, does that entitle me to judgement with my gratitude? Maybe. I don't see it that way, but others may think that if the giver is benefiting, then the gift has strings. Though it might be said that all gifts come with a benefit. I derive great joy at giving someone something for free.

Time for MPO. Nice conversation fellas. I am not sure I am going to see it all the way that some others do, but that's ok.
