Your site may be good for C900 enthusiasts, Craig. I cannot say since I am not one. OTOH, I have used the saabnet site for getting information about 9000's and NG900's for years and never once felt the need to post to the fora there. I have also successfully advertised and sold 2 cars through the Classifieds section there at a total cost to me of $50. I suppose I could have sold the cars at zero cost on some other site or via spamming newsgroups, but the amount of traffic at the saabnet site got the cars sold quickly and at the prices I wanted. I feel for those people who have been rebuffed by the saabnet owner/censor, but that does not mean that the site is not a valuable resource or that anyone who thinks that it is one is a "stooge." Otherwise, better paint me a stooge... -Fred W
