I'm not actually mainly I just think that if you want build and be part of a community and feel like you are furthering the evolution of ideas and good practice then you can feel that way and say "yeah but I want some cash for it" in which case your feeling is just that - a feeling (because your great evolutionary useful idea will only be baught bya very few people for one thing,and for another they will feel inhibited about sharing it because you have stipulated that they can't). I see these resources making their sellers literally a few pounds a year, is it worth holding back your ideas from general circulation for a few pounds a year? Or you can actually just ....oh my goodness.....share!! Is it so revolutionary? Is it just left wing loonacy???? Am I crazy backwater dreamer? we spend much of the first 10 years of school trying to train children to share, we talk about the value fo giving all day long, and we come home and have to buy from one and other? It may make sense to you, but it doesn't to me. ASIDE from all that my original post was asking the question at the top of the poll, we've been derailed as often happens simply because somebody posting earlier couldn't imagine why anyone would want to post resources for free or need to and I felt obligated to give some reasons. The origian question was simply - shouldn't TES be giving out a balanced, rather than a market oriented message?
