This board cost Alan a fair amount of money each year. It is not supported with taxpayer dollars. While I believe in free speech this is a private board dedicated for the benefit of Z3 owners and it should be run by standards Alan determines to be in the best interest for those of us that find the board quite informational. I don't mind posting my email when I believe I can make a consructive comment. Otherwise I just read what others have posted.

: Alan is busy and overworked already trying to keep up with the B.S. posters and whiners that seem to always disturb our exchanges of knowledge and fun. He can't monitor this site like a daycare center worker and work his regular job too, without it costing him time with his lovely lady.
: This is especially pointed in the direction of certain persons that view this as a "PUBLIC ANYTHING GOES" board, and who wish to come here whether we/you/me, like it or not.
: I would prefer password entry and legitimate e-mail address proof, before allowing anymore bottom-feeders to pee in our pool.
: That is my opinion, humble or not.
