My comment about Brian submitting spam was in reference to his photo of the can of spam in response to my posting a free review of the new F6. His post was off topic, IMHO, and did not make a positive contribution.
As for supporting this forum how many other mainstream US photo magazines have given support in the form of editorial mentions - June 03 and April 04 in CameraArts in the Publsher's Statement section.
I am in favor of sharing resources and info souces. I have done so in my magazine and when someone participates in either the View Camera or the CameraArts forum and mentions another source o info I do not complain or accuse them of anything. If there are sources of info lets be open about sharing them.
