Dear P:

Of course the quality of all postings is totally subjective.  I posted many
times and for the most part I received helpful information.   The delete
button was used more like 90% of the time, not 80%.  As an example, I found
the hundreds of postings on the value of the tape on the bottom of the
baseplate accounted for a large percent of the deletes.  Everyone has
different interests and I am always reluctant to lead a conversation to
processing, printing, mounting, nature photography, children photography, zone
system, and so on.  The Leica list is not all inclusive for me nor do I
believe that it is the only source of photographic information for LUGERS.   I
enjoy it some of the time.  I have owned many pieces of Leica equipment for
many years and I am more interested in what it will do for me than the
fascination of the equipment itself.   Of course, I am sure that many of my
postings were deleted by many other Lugers, which I am not the least bit
offended by.  That's why they make chocolate and vanilla and I happen to like
both!    The mouse and the delete button are wonderful features of computers,
aren't they?



<< Hi Bob,
 I guess I have to ask, how many postings did you do during the six months
 of lurking experience? And if not, did you not have something to add or
 make an improvement to the conversations in relation to what you say was,
 80% throw away material?  Or possibly what you might have posted been in
 the 80% throw away?
