This is a public mailing list. No one is in charge of answering mails to it. When sending to -questions, you are emailing the community of people, most of whom are willing to help when they have time and knowledge.

No one on this list gets paid for helping others via it. If you want paid support with no risk of potentially being offended by someone, you can actually pay for support through any one of many companies, or just hire a consultant.

You're under some whacky and wholly mistaken impression that anyone here is getting tips. We're here to help other users because that's how the community interoperates. Others help me, I in turn help others. If someone were rude to me or generally behaved poorly on the list, I may then be less inclined to answer a question they ask which I may know the answer to, or vice-versa.
Take care, mdh
