I think I’m probably one of those that types too much. This is
a wonderful forum that I found only two months ago when I finally
got on the net. I was addicted immediately and because of a long
vacation (17 days) without a ‘hit’ jumped back in full force! I
would hate to be a contributing cause of deterring anyone from
membership and contributing to the group because there was too
much “yak”. That said though, I do enjoy the lighthearted witty
humor that comes across – it breaks up my day and gives me a
The idea of including “yak” in the subject seems like a really
good idea! You can read it if you have time and thereby get to
know the members on a more personal level or just stick with the
technical stuff. Also, (as I have, in fact, already done several
times this past week) posts that do not have merit for the group
could be posted, as suggested, to the person and not the group.
My third suggestion -- i would like to see the person
responding to a post include a snippet of what the original
Dave’s other suggestion to include a is really a good
one. I’m often lost because I don’t remember the original. Even
if its just the subject and original author it would help. (You
could look it up in the archives) I’m one with the well known
CRS, mental pause, etc. who drives in the wrong direction, any
supporting documentation helps me heaps!
One last note, since I do both metal and lapidary I like both
being on the same list, however couldn’t the subject include
"metal" or “lapidary” in the same manner as “yak”?
For what its worth, that’s my 2 cents.
