This still burns me up. See, what happened is, at some point before I joined,
Nathan Mates got custody of the faq, and spent a lot of time html-izing it and
cross-linking it and generally making it useful. Then he decided to make it
his personal crusade to drive certain people from the group by constant flames
insults, and generally reducing the signal to noise ratio to near zero. When
this failed, he threw a tantrum and wiped out the faq (without warning) and
left the group. Yes, it's annoying that there are still active pirates on
CSA2 who will rip off the few remaining software producers for the apple2.
But Nathan went far beyond this, including everyone who copies software from
extinct companies too. In the end, I really think he lost his mind.

The text based faq IS available, or at least most of it is, at
