I am sorry that you felt that it was necessary to include the above
paragraph in your recent post.  This should give us all pause as to what is
happening to this group. I am fairly new (about 2 months) to the group also
and have been enjoying the general discussion about anything Leica. If we
leave  an impression that makes any of us feel that he or she must be
defensive about the ownership or use of their equipment, I think that it is
an indication we are not carrying out the prime purpose of this group. I
don't exclude myself from this.  I think we all need to take a deep breath
and start over on a more positive note.
