Rubbish ! I'm a computer programmer by trade and an entomologist in my
spare time. In fact, from what I have read here over the years, I
would say that roughly 80% of contributers here are amatuers.

Now, I think a few people out there (including yourself) are taking
this far too seriously. AFAIK, no-one (professional or amatuer) has
said that people who post adverts should be automatically kicked or
kill-filtered. Adverts just aren't that important. What I think
everyone _would_ like is for posters to contribute a little to the
group by sharing their knowledge or asking a question that starts a
bit of discussion. 

Best wishes,
Chris R.
