I really hope they're paid enough to make it worthwhile, as nobody with
half a brain would even contemplate doing what they do for free, ie.,
making a 3rd party richer off their own efforts.

Personally, I find this group extremely useful with respect to handling
all the issues which go with pushing FLOSS, particularly Linux, into
both workplace and school.  Roy S's news activities have been amazingly
helpful, and have made this group an excellent resource.

I wrote a listing out of relevant types of news posting;  took a look
through Roy S's posts, and they all were hitting one or other item
indicating that they're most certainly on-topic.  I suppose I shouldn't
be suprised at the willingness of eg., Mr Wong to break the law in order
to make money;  I'm sure it comes with the overall territory, ie., why
he would post off-topic here in the first place - clearly he has no
respect for rules (like the charter).  

The bit that I find most reprehensible is when the likes of Mr Wong and
Mr Quark and Timmy claim that on-topic material is off-topic, when
they've been polluting this group with their dung for years (in some
cases), or at least months.
