11180Re: [Gauge0] ADMIN History of this list
- Sep 7, 2010Hi Bruce,
Martin took over Dan's original Gauge0 Guild group, this is the group
set up when some of the Guild Board objected to Guild politics, and the
problems and discussion arising from the mass resignation of the
treatment of the then Events Committee, and they tried very hard to
block all discussion or dissent on what was happening within the Guild.
That was when a number of us started the alternative group. For a very
long time Martin tried, thankfully unsuccessfully, to ban Guild
political debate, despite it being the reason for the groups existence.
This in turn led to the 7mm group for purely modelling discussion. The
archived group is Dan's old group.
