Once again, I am forced to play "the heavy" as List Manager..

The CR list has once again ballooned to a huge number of daily posts almost all of which are pertinent to vintage bicycles.

BUT there also are messages being posted that are barely relevant.. I again quote from the CR List rules;

"(The CR List is) NOT INTENDED AS A "CHAT LIST" at all, but one in which every post contributes to the communal knowledge base."

Therefore I must warn you that, for example, listing photos of members, discussions of Tour de France riders (and not specifically their bikes) are not appropriate for the list. I know a few members disagree, but I must remind you that this is not a democracy but a "planned community."

Sorry to have to be a wet blanket, but this "Nuovo CR List" will be less tolerant than the trouble first edition... Consider yourselves freshly informed and keep your messages in bounds please.
