I appreciate your feedback, however these rules have been put in place
for a reason, and need to be followed as they would be on any email
list. To just say "lighten up" to the admin or those who are trying
to keep the rules in place is certainly no solution over time.
Anarchy can be a bad thing, particularly on an email list. I've seen
these lists go like that when the admin or moderators lose interest or
pass away, and suddenly all goes to hell. I've stayed with it even
when I was off the air for 5 years from 2001 until now.
If I remember, you have been a member of this list for likely 10
years. You know we have had polls, etc., about the "very few" rules
we have here. I do expect those "very few" rules to be followed and
do not expect people to tell me to lighten up when I remind them about
them. Go to some of the other lists we know so well and tell the
admin to "lighten up" ! See what happens.
As I've said many times in the last 10 years, I have NEVER banned
anyone from this list, and hope I never have to. That is simply not
my way of taking care of a problem unless it continues, and I have
grown very tired of this particular rule being ignored. I should be
given a bit more credit for my dedication to keeping us a "family",
and not have someone tell me to "lighten up" publicly on the list for
trying to keep the rules en tact. To you, it might mean hitting the
delete button, but for the 400+ members of this list and the extra BW
on the web, it means a lot more to me.
In closing; many years ago, and you should remember this Jack; most of
the founding members of this list agreed that for sale items were
perfectly fine, however we all agreed that any negotiating or replies
to items someone wanted to buy would be made OFF LIST.
This list is free to all the members, storage and bandwidth of said
replies above simply add costs to those who financially support the
qth.net server, which I am one.
