Hi Captain-

I apologized when I followed up on another member’s response to your post and I do so again…  Embarassed  Mea cupla… 

If Bert wants to weigh in and yank us from the site, that’ll be cool… Laugh  Usually, when a member has a complaint, a PM to Bert is a more tactful (and effective) way to handle it than your present approach.  But whatever…

Good Luck with your inquiry!!!  I’ve been waiting for three days to see if John (iskra) would weigh in…

Captain Rick…grow up.  It’s what’s called “free speech,” & happens on every other forum, because one response leads to another; your original question proved to be a dead end that lead to nothing, except the interesting digressions you’re complaining about.

Good point, Clarence. Turned out to be a good thread IMHO but I always like learning more about M70’s.

I am locking this topic as of this post.   Concerning this topic, while an individual member may start a topic, that person does not “own” the topic.  It is the sole property of the WACA.  While I for the most part agree that responses posted to a specific question(s) should endeavor to stay on topic, it is not a hard fast rule that they must do so.  Sidebar topics are often a good thing as they frequently promote related discussions.  If anyone has a problem with that, you should address it to me directly instead of openly whining about it in the topic (or starting a new post to whine about).
