I indicated in my question that I was not looking to pay for an answer, suggesting if you replied you wouldn't expect payment. The option was there not to answer. I am sorry if I was not clear. I am a CPA and this was not a complicated question. I had an my own interpretion but didn't find anything explicit, so I was looking for confirmation.

I fear you may feel cheated, which was not my intent. I hope this is understandable.

This system relies on the honor system and accepting responses is how the Experts that spend time answering you get paid. However, if none of the responses are acceptable to you, you don't have to accept them.

You are absolutely clear and I am not feeling as being cheated.

I wish you the best.
