Re: ADMIN: Re: Re: Still time to order DVD's!


FWIW, I agree with Greg and suggest that the rule be changed to reflect a requirement that anyone posting messages regard the selling of products by a commercial enterprise be required to at a minimum "occasionally" post messages germane to the list. Occasionally being determined by the owner/moderators but more than once a year.

I fully understand the rules but what I object to is that this email has

come from someone who does not participate in this forum accept when he has

something to sell and to me that is SPAM...

I think that others would agree and perhaps if they spoke up the rule would

perhaps change just a bit in our favor.

Hmmmm ...
I thought the STMFC Group rules clearly stipulated advertising on Friday
ONLY. Was there not a reminder about this recently ?
Perhaps there was a policy change that I am not aware of...

Here is the current rule...set in place several months ago:

"Messages regarding the selling of products associated with freight cars as

part of a commercial

enterprise must be sent during the period of noon Friday EST and Saturday

midnight EST."

Scott Mason's message arrived a bit late but I approved it

anyway...particularly since traffic is slow today. I will, however,


the rule's current time period to him. Also, the DVD must contain info on

steam era frt cars so, yes, his DVD might not pass muster.
