Bearing in mind Qantas' adjustments to its Status Credits/Tier Points in March, where it penalises QFFs for flying on airlines other than QF, does anybody know the position for members of other OW FF programmes travelling on QF? eg, do AA/BA/etc members earn less flying on QF than they would travelling on AABA/CX/etc?

That was a change to QF's programme for points and status awarded to their own frequent flyers, not to members of other partner programmes. Each airline awards points and status for flying on partners differently, which ususally depends on how close the two arilines are aligned commercially. For example, QF gives 1 point per mile on LAN, whereas BA only awards 0.25 points per mile, and then both airlines have different ways to work out the number of satus credits or tier points awarded too. I don't think any other OW airlines have announced a retaliation against QF for penalising their members for flying with other carriers...
However, I have noticed that BA doens't award points or status to QF domestic sale fares booked into E class.

Cloud-9, you assert that Qantas penalises their FF's for flying on non Qantas metal code-share flights...did you mean to raise the lower earn rates for points and status credits when a QFF takes a code-share flight on non-Qantas metal? Not sure I would state this as "penalising" their frequent flyers.
The commercial reality seems to have been lost on many...
