Wayne, I've read the discussion that you refer to and added my two cents there. I see only one person who has an issue with the content of your post, and his reasoning seems flawed to me. (And BTW he promised that was his last post on the subject).
I had been a member of this forum for several months before I knew that your site existed. It was one of your posts that made me aware of it.
My point, without some notification to new members, the site will not be viewed by many.
I also read Lee Koo's post and do agree that the site promotes a sense of community or family in this forum.
This was a great idea when you started it, and it still is.
My advice: Keep up the good work.
When you sent me your picture and I asked if I could advertise it you said ok, just keep it in the same thread. Again, sorry, but I feel the need for one more post on the subject.
After reading the many replies, most supportive, some not, this will be the last post on the subject. The nots have won. I've been accused of posting spam, making it difficult to find the pictures, breaking the topic of the thread, using profane language, and so forth. So be it. I'll be adding pictures as other members send them to me, and I added a few last night and one more this morning. But no more mention of the site, pictures, or the subject will be posted by me.
For those of you who would like to drop by from time to time, here is the link to the pictures http://220.127.116.11/CNet_folks/page.html It looks strange because it resides on my IBM NetVista here at the house. For those who would like to visit the home page, there is a link at the bottom of each pictures page. For those who would like to send me a picture and join the Rogue's Gallery, my email link is on the home page. I've got about 35 Gig available on the IBM so more pictures are welcome.
As they say in the cartoons, "That's all, folks."
