I accept my punishment of the banned list. Let my devistation be in DVSssss head!

I'm leaving the group.

I think it's a bad sign when someone can "pull the plug" on a free-flowing conversation that reveals multiple points of view.

Why is a frank discussion about the add & pass "Stirring the beehive"?

How has the discussion been "confrontational"?

I don't see it.

When I posted about the Add N Pass, I didn't mean to "stir the bee hive!"

I am not a confrontational person...I was just stating something that was brought to my attention by Fast Eyes.

Please let it end with this post.

Hmmmm, Amy. On the serious side I wonder if someone is copying vintage a & ps. Nothing wrong with that. I'm not going to introduce a Fake A P concept,

On the not-serious side I demand Amy Irwen be placed on the Banned List for spreading fake a and ps. Bad apple

Haha DVS......I just don't like rules...butt seriously some of those dates 4 years ago are photo copies going around a second time.

I would propose if you receive an A&P you must spend a MINIMUM OF FOUR YEARS working on it before you can mail it.

This will ensure quality and extend the tradition.

Don't know why I'm substituting gave for have.

We should add a "Banned List" in this group's discussion thread for people who gave been reported for "Offenses Against the Add & Pass" like not conforming to deadlines, using too much or little space (doncha hate people who hog the space) or people you refuse to work with because they annoy you (increasingly my fave).

If people accrue enough complaints, remove them from IUOMA. Someone wanted a very strict membership policy once (tried to gave me removed in fact!), Maybe it's time to revisit.

Nancy it is not "rush nor pressure". But something so simple as an Add N Pass shouldn't take so much time to send along. In this case 4 years.

Everyone has their own opinion, I guess.

Comment by Nancy Bell Scott on June 24, 2018 at 11:06pm

So true, jimmyconnors. What could be the rush? Seems like a new standard in mail art. Really new. It will be an odd rule if it becomes one. Pressure is hardly the point, and never was.
