On the other hand, Syndicomm didn't do Bugzilla work and your sig wasn't 
an ad for consulting services...

I see Max's point about being compensated for the work he does, but I 
think that anyone who has any connection with Bugzilla and who drops by 
the newsgroup will see him answering questions with his sig there in its 
full glory. :-)

Lots of people contribute to Bugzilla in different ways and, while I am 
very pleased that Max has taken on the job of making releases, in 
hindsight it seems a bit unfair on people who "just" do back-end work 
but also offer consulting services.
