In some threads people have made an issue of how much hard drive space we are using up ( even tho the owner never said any thing and the forum doesn't pay for it).

I'm not raising this point to make an issue out of storage limitations since it is currently not an issue. However, the statement is wrong in implying that this forum is an unlimited resource that doesn't cost anyone anything. Just because we don't see the costs, doesn't mean that they don't exist.

This site is hosted by one of our forum members, John Nebel, through his ISP business. His involvement (and that of Ann Cantlow) includes tech support that is of a level that I have never experienced from a commercial provider. If anyone has any experience is contracting for technical support of a website, you will know what this is worth.

John is providing this service strictly out of his own personal generosity toward all of the members of this site. I find it troubling that this generosity is so easily dismissed.
