There was no "rant", Christopher, simply a statement of fact.  I am an 
amateur photographer, because I am not paid for my work — this is no way 
a pejorative statement, nor would anyone interpret it as such, and it 
does not act as a barrier to being asked to act as duty photographer at 
various events — see, for example, bowls club/50th 

In just the same way, those who programme as a hobby rather than as paid 
employment are amateur programmers — neither more, nor less.  This in no 
way devalues their work, which may well be as good as, or even better 
than, professional work.
