I think this is getting out of hand.  Sure, you can "get" such a figure
by multiplying hours, days and weeks, but there are few of us that have
even part of a day to "give" or "sell", so 3- or even 4-figures might be
normal.  I cannot speak for Diana Horton, but when she asked the first
question, I think that 6-figure earnings did not even cross her mind.

Even so, at $500/h in the US for lawyers, we identifiers are not even in
the race.
