Well that's just rude. Even if you don't intend to maintain the software
any more, why are you removing it from pypi? Since you say you are a fan
of Open Source software, just flag it as unmaintained and leave it for
somebody else to pick up.
If you are going to abandon the project, release it on PyPI with a dual
MIT and GPL licence, and let it be taken over by somebody else.
If you were looking for sympathy here, starting off by removing your
project from free hosting, then complaining that you can't pay for the
non-free hosting, was NOT the right way to do so.
By the way, the latest version of notmm (0.4.4) has an empty licence
file. No licence means that everyone using it is unlicenced and therefore
infringing your copyright.
