Thread Name: BS: I love the mudcat.
Subject: RE: BS: I love the mudcat.
Has anyone on this thread thought to ask Max (a) how many mails a day he gets from MudCat readers in addition to his ordinary volunteer duties watching over the system and getting it up when it's down, tending to improvements and keeping up with sysadmin issues? I am a strong believer in good comm ddisciplines, but I also know you have to be circumspect about demanding things from people who are already turning out great work on a volunttary basis. Unless you're willing to do a better job in their place. This sort of community works on freely granted goodwill, not on rosters of duty and tasking. Let us not harass the giver of golden eggs.
