fix: remove postinstall script
This was needed a few years ago to let people know that without active support I'd (remy) wouldn't feel like there's any actual support to help me maintain this project. Since then (it's been a good few years), there's been a few things come up. Firstly, the `||` breaks (some) powershell users. Not all, I could never replicate the problem myself, but others definitely experience it. Then there was the `npm fund` attempt to support projects. In honesty, this does zero to actually support nodemon. The reality is that people want their tools (and software) for free, so asking users to run an extra step after installing (the `npm fund` bit) and _then_ pick a project they want to support *and then* do the payment thing was just way way too much. I know I don't use it, and I'm positive others don't too. The majority of early supporters of nodemon have been individuals, and I know it was because of the postinstall script I added back in 2018: https://remysharp.com/2018/01/10/open-source-with-a-cap-in-hand Lastly, the vast, vast majority of financial supporters to nodemon in the last 12 months haven't been individuals. Nor have they been companies (with the exceptions being opencollective themselves and Frontend Masters - both, thank you, it means a lot). The recent supporters have come from an…"odd" spot of the internet. Perhaps to help their SEO ranking, I'm not sure, but I am going to take their money as a way of them saying "let's support the many developers who use nodemon by giving it's maintainer financial support". So, long story short: I've removed the postinstall, and hopefully this reduces the noise to you, the amazing day-job developer, and hopefully that odd corner of the web continues their donations, as I'm positive they're not using the `npm fund`!
