At the risk of offending you, I suggest again that you change the way
you put stuff on your web site. Let me explain why.
Currently, your front page shows your Bowser turntable (very nice, by
the way, as all your modeling seems to be). Fine.
But going back through this newsgroup, we find messages from you
announcing pictures of:
* Your "mighty Mikado) (9/18/07)
* An ashpit toolrack (9/14/07)
* A weathered building on Rt. 66 (9/4/07)
* Dioramas from JL Innovative (8/30/07)
and many more. The problem is that if I look at one of your previous
posts and want to see, say, the toolrack, I get your front page which
now has the picture of the turntable. I can't see the Mike or the
dioramas (at least not without hunting for them).
The better way to do this would be to put each of these on a separate
page: for example, http://www.rrscenery.com/turntable . (There are other
ways of doing this; this is just a fr'instance.) This way, people could
find your earlier pictures in case they missed them, or if they want to
see them again (they're certainly worth a second look).
If you don't know how to do this, I'm sure there are plenty of folks
here who'd be glad to show you how.
Anyhow, just a suggestion.
He's pretending to show us his turntable but really directing us to
his website for his business. SPAM.

I don't buy that. First of all, practically everyone here knows who he
is and what he sells. His user ID is the name of his business. No one is
being deceived here. And besides, it's not spam: spam is the unsolicited
posting of multiple messages, via email or newsgroups, to promote a

Unfortunately, "spam" has been pretty much hijacked to mean "any posting

Spam, or not, it is Model Railroad related and I've always enjoyed the site.
Excuse me, I'll be right back. I have to log onto a server in Romania
and verify all of my EBay, PayPal, bank and Social Security information
before they suspend my accounts.

Agreed. However I dislike when someone pulls this garbage. If you want
to post an germane to the group advertisment then just advertise it.
Don't piss on my leg and try to tell me it's rain.
