      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
      2000+ members.
