Once again I've stirred a hornet's nest. Lemme state my case and then shut
First, my objection to the lengthy commercial message hit two nerves. First
is my sensitivity to spam (unsolicited commercial emails). I counted 34 of
them as I logged on this morning. If I want to read commercials I will log
onto eham (which I do frequently) and look over the newest stuff.
Second, the contest reflector (IMHO) is an extension of our on-the-air
communication forum. Commercials are not acceptable on-the-air, so I PRESUMED
they were not in good taste on the reflector. I pay for an ad in NCJ to
advertise my wares and never discuss them on the air or on a reflector.
Finally, I don't know how anyone can take my comments as disrespect to K1KI.
Tom is an old friend who does yeoman work keeping the reflector as on-point
I guess we don't have a completely shared vision of what this reflector is
for. I thought it was contesting. Sorry.
