Your analysis is excellent.

Although I'm not an academic, I certainly would feel the same about participating without pay. I actually feel this way about review copies sent to bloggers: they get me off track of my usual reading, and there's no real incentive. Sure, it's a free book, but I don't care to be used.

Well, that's a little off-topic, but I appreciate your thoughtful blog.

I find nothing about this strange!

The Mama

If, as the old proverb declares, nothing in life is free...than neither should you be expected to dole out precious brain power or give away your time for no compensation. Great observation, agree with your sentiment.
