Not all, but some do get paid some way or other, not acknowledging this
fact is living in utopia.

It is great you do not do it for money. But then, why judge how
motivated one is for a cause so dear to him / her ?

What if I say, you are not doing enough (as of today) and therefore your
efforts of past be also forgotten by removing your name from list of
contributors. Does it sound nice ?

The question is would you like to judge (or be party to) other people as
contributors / ambassadors / volunteers ? And if yes, on what basis you
don this judgemental role (on equally passionate role of others however
dormant it may be today) ?

with Regards,
