Why do you expect to make a profit from other people's labors? Isn't
it fair that, if you are going to charge money for something that you
didn't do, that you give a portion of that money to the ones who did
the work?

(Insert story of Henny Penny here.)

Look at it this way, giving money back to the ones who did the work
will keep *them* in business, so they can do *more* work.

Enough said in this list, please mail me personally about
