No, the war in Iraq is a "serious issue". You really do need to get a little perspective on this whole matter.
I also find it interesting that you chose not to respond to my descrition of how other fan communities deal with the circulation of unofficial material.
I still find it puzzling that you choose to "condone" illegal profiteering when I have pointed out that there is a better way.

On that, I think we can agree.Mike S wrote:I'm glad you chose to edit your post to remove the link you previously sent. Believe me, it doesn't further our cause as collectors of new (or improved) product.
I still think that there is much that can be learned from other fan communities.
There has been a recent campaign at a Springsteen Message Board (Google SPL Forums) to encourage collectors to freely circulate material that they have previously refused to let go (at any price). It has been successful in unearthing a treasure trove of material that nobody even new existed. It has been spread for free for the pleasure of the fans and nobody has made any money out of the exercise.
I believe that there are Elvis collectors out there that have equally rare material and that much could be learned from the Springsteen parallel. It doesn’t have to be about the money.
Happy New Year.

It might be worth doing a little research based on the example I have already given before calling someone a liar.
Happy New Year to you too.
