If James Crumlish makes a post here or in some other public forum, he has chosen to distribute it widely.

Or, they could just read the notices posted on tsn, and save everyone a bunch of hassle. To quote, on the page where one enters the data into a form to post something in the discussion boards: "To promote your own Saab site here, you must have a link back to The Saab Network (or your posting wil be deleted).

I just don't get it why people feel that they're owed something by someone who runs a free service. It's like people bitching about freeware not having the features they want, but not going out and writing any to fix the problem. Dave Hinz
