It has come to our attention that some folks, when answering a
query, have been asking to be paid for research. We do recognize that it would be fair to be
asked to be reimbursed for postage and photocopy costs. However, charging research fees for
information pertaining to the original query would be questionable at best.
If anyone is asked to pay for any information, other than to cover the cost of postage and
