Re: Press releases & QCUSA
While I agree with much of what you say, David, I do take exception
to a few things. I've only been on the list since December and I, too,
have found it very valuable. I guess my disagreements fall into 2
categories. The first can be explained with 2 quotes from you. As
far as your problem with 1a goes, just use 1b.
1) a)"...there is way too much bandwidth used by people joking around,
letting conversations degrade to a useless level and bitching about
pitches" and the way the QCUSA is run."
b) "If you see something that doesn't interest you, delete the damn
message and get on with life..."
2) QCUSA The reason people who aren't members are interested is
that they would like to be members in a national (or international) Audi
organization. Right now there are too many questions with how the org.
is run for me to fill out the form. The point is now moot for me since I
am selling my Audi, but it is those questions which kept me from
joining before I decided to sell.
