This is my last posting on this thread.
The people who use this site should all "profit" from the sharing of ideas and knowledge...and from being entertained. So long as this continues what do I care if a corporation owns it, and if there is a little commercialism? I am mature enough to understand capitalism and how bills get paid. If the uncensored sharing and entertainment doesn't continue I am smart enough to know that another forum will pop up where I can go. Right now I see no need to need to worry since " Worry is interest paid on fear before it is due."
RIght now my wife wants the house and garage clean of any clutter, so I'll be spending the next few days photographing many items and posting them on ebay, Craig's List and perhaps EPICSKI. Anyone want a new Carrera Bullet, a vintage HERTEL waxing machine or some DPS skis at a great price? This is what I mean about sharing ideas (with the Alfred E Newman photo being the entertainment).
