Dear members of the list
If you have followed the public discussion between Mr MacHan and
myself, you have learned that I was suspended from the list. After
deleting several entries in Armadillo's homepage that might have been
related to the members-only section of the z scale yahoo group, my
suspension was lifted again.
You may now have the impression that everything is fine. But this is
far from true, as Mr MacHan has also sent me some "private" e-mails,
which greatly differ in content and tone. I do not intend, however,
to lengthen this discussion further.
Let me just clarify that I never wanted to lessen the value of a
membership of the z scale yahoo forum in any way. On the contrary, it
always was my intention to provide other Z enthusiasts with as much
available information as possible - without any personal profit, of
course. Unfortunately, other people seem to value their personal
prestige higher than the interests of the Z community...
The latest (private..) e-mails of Mr MacHan have convinced me that
there is no basis for a trusting and respectful cooperation with him
in the future. Sad as it is, I therefore must quit my membership in
this forum and also withdraw my offer for free banner advertising on
I would like to thank all remaining members which have supported me
in this matter. I hope you will continue to visit Armadillo's
