It's a good point you make, dgs, about Axel speaking for himself as his email; the only thing I would say is that perhaps he did not realise that all email was for publication and thus saw his email as more private than it ended up being (however Drobe do say that all email is for publication so that's fair enough I suppose).
Of course the Drobe editors aren't running it for profit, and I would never deny the huge importance of the job they do to the RISC OS community. However I still maintain that the nature of their job (particularly in view of the role it plays in unifying RISC OS users everywhere) implies a responsibility on their part. Perhaps 'professionalism' is the wrong word: what I am referring to is not to do with money. It's hard to find the right word, but I think you probably know what I mean (I hope).
