Wolf, I very much agree with you. To me, this list is a resource...the
collective experience and opinions of some 2000 people in the same
profession is invaluable, and I by no means consider that the time I spend
responding to questions or participating in discussions is "wasted."

The way I deal with this issue is to respond to postings when I have the
spare time and to lurk when I'm flooded with deadlines. Anyone who has no
unbillable hours to spare might consider trying this approach.
