Here is what I sent directly.  I am pleased by the tempest (albeit in a
teapot!) over this.  Photographers CAN learn, contrary to common

I saw your post on the Leica Users Group and must say I was astonished
that you get anyone to submit stuff for so little.  Desperation I guess. 
Perhaps you do all the archival printing as well, but even that wouldn't
come close to making sense.  

Once again, photographers give stuff away so distributors can make
money.  Isn't the art world a neat place??  Sounds like you've taken the
lead from the Clip disc companies."
