I don't quite understand. You subscribe to this very informative list. How much are YOU paying the people who are letting their lights shine in this list? How much are they demanding?
As I see this, Wiki is based on the same generic principal: the inner need to help, the inner need to let your light shine, or (probably most common) a combination of both. Maybe also (as I have experienced) you learn by sharing, because then you have to formulate what you think you know. Which I see as a good thing. So, FrameUsers, Wiki and Open Source is not such a bad thing, I guess. For that matter, the Internet was really created this way, by sharing information. And FramaMaker would be dead without it.
