Thank you most kindly,
Embarrassed technical writer
After reading Gordon Hayes open letter to this List, a feeling of
collective professional shame crept entered my mind. Many of you responded
to my previous message (outlining a request for reasonable actions
concerning cross posting). Unfortunately, you missed my point people. It
is not the Copyright issue I take umbrage. It is the "me first" -or- "my
turf" mentality that sometimes crops up on this moderated forum. Gordan's
intentions were simple and understandably "good".
Like I asked before... who on this list is making money from their
"esteemed" messages posted on TWList? If, as someone said "Nobody, of
course.", then lets move onward.
