I'm confused by your rather ambiguous post Darkside: on the one hand you're warning against "part-timers" and sort of telling us not to pay barfines. Then at the end you say we should support the bars??
I did not warn against part timers and did not tell anyone to not pay bar fines. I was and am uncertain about whether to support the bars by not asking awkward questions.
Everyone agrees that if you meet a girl in a bar you pay the bar fine. My question is: if she is not employed by the bar, is there any reason to pay it the next night, if you arrange not to meet in the bar?
Further research suggests that this is not a situation likely to arise. It seems that girls described as part time or freelance are in fact employed by a bar, but don't get a salary. They work on commission only. But the bar still expects them to turn up every night or pay a bar fine.
There may also be genuine freelancers who move from bar to bar as the mood takes them. Anyone with more information?
