A valid point. More valid than most responders seem to realize- Does the
average surgeon give away his services? The average accountant? Baseball
player? Graphic designer? Etc..No..Why should a photographer be expected to?
The expectation is reflective of the view of photographers as dumb button
pushers, and we know how valid that is...

Everyone, we're getting away from photography, but my point is, that an
accountant who does major corporation work should be insulted if I imply by
my request that he should do my taxes for $29 when he doesn't have the time
to do that, because that covers about 2 minutes of his time, and if he
refuses, I call him uppity.
