I have seen this bunch complain about "off topic" for messages that are far 
more on topic that this is.

Does your keyboard have a delete key?  It does?  Good.

Learn to use it.

If you are one of those people that are paranoid about your address being 
"harvested", please use your radio for communications and stay off of the 
internet.  Crap happens there.  The FCC will nanny your ham radio comms if 
you need it.

Sorry for the attitude, but for a bunch that yells "off topic" as much as 
this one does, this takes the cake.
