Tom, I commend you for your passion about your projects, but please don't take it out on the membership if they don't fall in line. The concept of the few vs. the many has been prevalent for thousands of years in politics, sales, and ... literature. Membership numbers do not translate into numbers of eager participants in any endeavor. For instance, I might care about this contest, but become completely indifferent about a discussion of fluid dynamics in a hydraulic system. There is only a relative handful among the active members who post routinely, anyway. The rest signed up to learn about stuff important to them, in general, or their tractor, in particular. If "literature" isn't one of them, who can fault them?Hydriv said:Just a reminder to all those who are able to read and also figured out how to use a mouse.
