Spam bots were horrible. They ended most of it when they implemented the new security screen when you start up an account. Thankfully
I guess I fall in to that category. I remember when the only source of info was hobby magazines, books, and the local pet shop (yikes!) (I started the hobby around '90). We ventured into this brave new world and conquered! LOL Nowadays, just open up google and search around....you've got a library as well as knowledgeable fellow hobbyists at your fingertips.Ya know thinking back Beth, I started in the late '70s and it took so much effort to get any information. With FAMA being a good source for instance.
But now with internet, boards like this one and even just plain old google, information is so much easier to obtain.
But I guess ya gotta be a really old guy (f***) LOL to understand that let alone fell it.
