Dear List Members,
This is the same group (78rpmcommunity) that sent me a fairly rude email in
December saying they were dropping me from their list because I have not
posted things to their website! That's a fairly strange way to win friends
and influence people and seems like a really bad PR move on their part.
You would think they would like to have as large a following on their
website as possible, but that is obviously not how they think.
After that experience, I can't imagine why I would want to spend time
pouring over their 100 page newsletter, much less contributing anything to
