much of what you said made a lot of sense. however, i do disagree with
your statement below.
you name two members of the forum as profitting from the
work/contributions of others, but say the others named in this post do
among them are ppl who do publish their work for profit via books or
articles. richardson and finton are just more "public" with what they
glean. tar them all with the same brush or not at all. or are you
working from a little bit guilty to a whole lot guilty scenario?
Whatever the opinion of me and others, the reality is that Finton is
here to gather data for his journal and Richardson is here to sell
and have others do his leg work. I would not deny that both have made
contributions, but I believe they should be kept in context with the
contributions of others like Taylor, Stone, Baldwin, Thompson,
Powys-Lybbe, Channing, Greene, Bevan, Farmerie, Allen, van de Pas,
Stewart and yes, Reed and many wonderful others. The former have a
financial interest. The latter do not.
