Re: Inner circle
I have recently posted a couple of questions to the list, but received
absolutely no response, while the Eric vs Phil thing is getting a ridiculous
amount of attention. What does one have to do to get into the "inner circle"
of listers, and get some help with day to day Audi problems? The list is
taking on a rather nasty, almost "call in talk show" personality.
Ignoring the flame wars...
Maybe noone had anything meaningful to say. Maybe everyone thought

*same old question* a thirteenth time.
So, 1) what were your questions,
and 2) did you research the archives before bugging (said with a
smile, don't get pissed!) the list?
