It's not fair to copy stuff from one forum to another, it's obvious from the 
context that IRC is much more informal, and talk about 'freeloaders' wasn't 
inflammatory, contrary to the guy who made the personal comments about 
Jon, accusing him of flame bait on the list.   I don't really care who it was.  
Fact is Jon has been for many years one of the better technical posters here, 
and has not to my recollection caused issues on the list.

The whole issue of fees, and reimbursing the ppl putting together the 
training, could have been raised in a way that would keep the thread on 
topic.  Then Jon would undoubdedly speak for himself.
