The point was to pay for dev release. You see there is a logical error in text that you pointed out. I don't really think that sublime 1 is very useful, but paying for dev (aplha) releases of sublime 2 (which is much better and I really liked) in my option will reduce feedback information.
This post is not about "I want sublime for free". I'll will be first one to pay for it (after stable release)
