There is (or was - I cannot find it in my bookmark file) a web site
called "McScouter" that summed this up very nicely on its opening page.
It said (this is from memory, so excuse me if this is a paraphrase
rather than a quote):
If you are paid to do Scouting you are called a Professional,
If you are not paid to do Scouting, you are called a Volunteer,
If you must pay to do Scouting, you are called a Scouter.
