        Extremely well spoken, Hans. I'm one of the members who used to collect, but now that my interests have changed I simply make it a point to put up any 'classic' stuff I may get for auction or direct sale. I do my best not to gouge, and I know I've not polluted the list with daily ads for stuff.

        Speaking as both a former collector and as someone who's in the electronics business, I say let them on. No reservations.
