For what it's worth, nothing I've ever seen on this listserv, or at any GNSI meeting for that mater, has ever looked remotely like collusion. The pricing discussions we've had (and which I personally appreciate immensely) are more like group therapy sessions. Something along the lines of: "yes, it's OK for you to make enough money to live on. I know you enjoy your work, but that doesn't mean you have to do it for free. What you do does have value. True, you are an artist, but you don't really have to starve yourself. Self inflicted suffering is not actually a professional requirement."
