And I don't see where I am aggressive at all. But I am very well aware of many people not being able to read the real content of a written message. They prefer to interpret the content as mean as possible instead of remembering that this is an international forum. So you do not only see lots of different persionalities, but also lots of cultural and educational differences.

- Maximal file-size enhanced for file-types else than *.ICO¦*.CUR¦*.ANI
(1024×1024 pixels guaranteed, more at your own risks).

IcoFX 2.0.1 is no longer freeware. :?

Well, I guess you can't really blame the guy for going shareware. It's still a good piece of software, just not worth the price. Especially when you can get the Microangelo toolset cheaper, which I consider to be the best icon / cursor editor there is.
