Response to Compulsory Registration on Discussion Groups

(i) I am not a model builder
(ii) I really value missing-lynx because I am an avid researcher of aspects of the Normandy and other campaigns in N-W Europe (my father fought in Normandy, Antwerp, up to Nimegen, Battle of the Bulge etc etc as a Sherman tank driver in 8th Armoured Brigade and 11th Armoured Division )
(iii) I am keen to share information with others and already have a network54 account to allow me to do this
(iv) this has all proved to be of benefit to myself and, I believe, to others
(v) I have made friends with people off missing-lynx and even met up with at least one (Ulrich, you know who you are!), again, I believe, to mutual benefit

First it was the (correct) comments about copyright (but please lets have a sense of proportion).

Second it is about registration.

What will be next?

What I do know is that every time an extra layer of 'rules' are applied it will lead to a dilution in the quality of missing-lynx. When it gets below 'critical mass' the forum will collapse for reasons that are obvious to all. This will no doubt please the lawyers who seem to have started all this because they will have solved the problem!!!

Moral: get rid of missing-lynx and then you will have no problems of copyright infringement etc etc etc etc etc. There will also be a far smaller market for books, models etc etc etc.

PS: I will 'watch and wait' and then act accordingly but I must echo Peter's comments in all of this
