I'm not going to get dragged into this little mudfest between a couple  
of you.

We can't monitor or police you all, read every post, or notice every  
complaint posted to the lists.  I was routinely castigated by  
'respectable' members of the lists when I did remind people of some  
basic rules or enforce them (amusingly enough, a good example was when  
I routinely reminded people of the no-for-sale-ads-to-the-lists rule.)

You got what you wanted.

I try to respond to the complaints I get.  Two people complained about  
Glen's post within a day or two.  I don't recall any from you in  
recent memory.  I'm not very interested in getting flooded with  
complaints from people about minor things or one-off's.

Again: contact the person privately. If that doesn't work and they're  
really being a pain, email Dan, Mark, or myself.  Hint: our email  
addresses are not "quattro at audifans.com"

In the meantime, I know Mark has been working on an improved version  
of the marketplace in his spare time, but being a professor and having  
a young son means his days are pretty busy.
