Michael....this is my take on the subject
- Hi Michael,
I guess I am different then you are because I would much rather read
spirited conversation by a large number of people about something that
effects asll of us (i.e. what eBay is going to charge us to sell our Z
scale items) then I would mundane conversation that effects a very few
people (i.e. how to re-assemble the gears in a croc after you have
taken it apart).
I enjoy reading what other like minder people are thinking.

I did not read all replys, but I haven't read anything positive or
constructive. Just b*ching undeserved by "US" the moderaters/owners &
list members. We do have certain "rules"to help keep this a happy
family of Z scalers, but some push the limits, a very few, not all
