    I assume this is not exactly industry news.

    A thread is already running:

    http://www.apug.org/forums/forum56/1...ion-block.html

    (But we are to refrain to use the K-word...)

    Sorry. Did not see that thread. Will also never mention that word again. Sheesh, such a restrictive forum. S word, and now the K word. Anything else?

    Nonsense (to be polite about it) on not mentioning the word. I've yet to see anyone with authority say the word is banned and, if I do, I'll quit APUG. I understand endless threads whining about its demise and wanting it back get tiresome. I get that, really. But recalling it fondly or mentioning it in historical context like this being verbotten? Bull paddies.

    I would assume that the OP placed this thread in "Industry News" as it relates to an upcoming auction and may be of interest to dealers in art and memorabilia as well as collectors.

    I for one certainly won't refrain from mentioning Kodachrome as it is a historically important product spanning what I (and may others) consider the golden age of photography. It is a shame the product has gone but I do think both the product and the work it was used for should be celebrated.

    That's good to know. Since I have been warned and had a critical and very helpful thread deleted (before I could save it) for mentioning the S word, I am very unsure of this place. I've never been in such a restricted environment before so find it strangely unfriendly. Forums are usually pretty casual as long as you arent a troll.

    We got a special forum "Antiques and Collecting"
    http://www.apug.org/forums/forum127/

    I thought "Industry News" to be related to the manufacturing industry. I admit though that its sub-title is ambiguous.

    In 50 years, about all I'll be holding up, is dirt.

    Little unclear on the S word...

    I think they mean scanning. I have no problem with it. Yes, talk of it needs to be self limited but not banned.
