TT is a great resource, BUT can I please ask everyone who responds to a question to NOT respond ONLY to the individual, but include the TT list in the response! Just hit “reply ALL"
Often we get private email answers, with the TT archive not included. (this has happened MANY times to myself) Why do that? Respond to ALL in the email, and include the TT archive.
Why respond only to the individual and not the list? Are you shy? Do you think no one else wants to know your idea or opinion? Are you afraid to get flamed? The reason these mailing lists work is because we can search the archives for answers. If you don't reply to the list, those ideas are lost. All responses are welcome.
If someone doesn't like your response they can hit delete, or not read it. Every reply has value.
The notion that people have "limited bandwidth” for email responses is something from the stone age today.

I originally started TT because there wasn't any source for credible answers to tower construction questions. And believe me - when you're new at tower installations, you've got LOTS of questions!
