Re: Information Age Holdback Nonsense
Sorry all. I am really going to try to cut down on my remarks on
this subject! Obviously, I have strong views on the matter.
I can appreciate the laid-back approach you and Steve enjoy.
However, I fail to find cause in your statement why EVERYONE should HAVE to
operate in that way. If many of us would prefer a faster, more efficient
method, why can't we have it? I will reiterate my main point- I am NOT
advocating an abandonment of all paper and regular mail operations for the
AKA. I understand that many of us like operating that way. I am advocating
ADDING fast internet operations (and am willing to pay extra dues for the
service) to the services currently available so ALL members can operate in
the manner they prefer. I wouldn't exclude anyone! I only want to add to
the ability of this organization to fulfill its stated mission to promote
killie keeping and to disseminate knowledge. Today, this includes the
internet. Something the AKA already acknowledges with its website.
