I just deleted 120 so called "weathering" emails from my in box.

(That's just from the last two weeks!) Pity the fool who thinks they

might learn something about weathering in this forum. If you need to

learn how to copy a .jpg file, make moose antlers or buy a

weathering DVD, this is the place to do it. Maybe you ought to

consider changing the name, so people who want to learn, won't be

mislead.

Hi Jerry,



I agree, but then it seems a lot the groups I'm in do the same

thing. To much chat about nothing, and not enough about the

subject.

Jerry, in answering your Subject Line,"yes". I've been model railroading

for going on sixty years and continually find something new on how to do

things, including weathering.



This Group is just over a year old and has 837 members. That says something

about its popularity and translates into the amount of email that gets sent

out. The Photos posted and the compilations of topics in the Files section

are worth the membership alone.



120 emails in two weeks indicates to me that you were away from your

computer during that time. When I plan to be away any amount of time I go to the

web site and change my Personal Preferences to "No Email" and save it. When I

return, I reverse the procedure and start getting emails again. Then I go to

the site and browse through the files to see if there's anything of interest

I'd like to read.



Due to the number of Yahoo Groups I belong to, I typically receive over a

hundred emails a day. Two weeks worth would be on the order of 1,400 emails

for me to deal with, if AOL allows that many. Too much confusion when there's

an alternative.



Hope this sheds some understanding to you about the group (and other groups

as well) and perhaps you will find membership in it valuable.



Keevan
