I think there should be honesty if you have used someone’s resources.
If you do something wrong and eat something that does not belong to you can make you pay in any alternate way.
Its my own opinion. Rest is your choice.
But for getting something you need to invest something.
We all are bloggers and honesty is our policy. We are serving people by giving them information or services. That is the best thing we can do.
If someone is helping in this work we should also pay them what they deserve. If you have been charged without information then you can ask them for their fault.
By the way don’t take on your own.
Just my opinion.
