Wow, ben.holmes, lighten up a bit!  There are already a bunch of Leica
vendors who will cheerfully add you to their mailing list.  There is RPM for
all of us.  There is the Leica Catalog, the primary benefit of LHSA
membership.  There are a thousand other ways to buy/sell Leica stuff.  That
was Roger's point, and he's correct.

However, if someone wants to set up a buy/sell list on LUG, more power to
'em.  Just limit the postings to, say, once a week and clearly label them as
such, and those who don't choose to read them can simply delete the entire
message unread.
