[DML] Re: Leaving the group: was binnacle removal issue



In my opinion, the yahoo group system is flawed in that searching for
information in previous posts is difficult and yields a lot of dead
ends, hence the constant repeated posting of the same questions and
answers. I did manage to discover a shareware tool (www.pgoffline.com)
 that allowed me to download every post from this group dating back to
the very beginning put it into a searchable database. With this tool,
I thought I found the answer to not having to continuously post asking
questions. What I did find, when I would research a problem, is that
over the years, different people would post in response to various
questions and offer such colorful and varied insight rather than just
the same static answer to the question. Even the same old boring
questions would spawn a whole side discussion that would carry on for
a week or more and be jam packed full of good ideas. Even regular
forum posters in answering the same questions over the span of several
years would offer different insight or information that was previously
unpublished. 
When people ask me about the DeLorean, one thing I find myself always
saying is that this is one of the most well supported exotic cars on
earth. This is due not only to our vendors that have all the parts we
could possibly need, but also the vast network of contributors to this
forum who tirelessly answer the same questions over and over and
promote the spread of information. Without these folks, the DeLorean
would be just another dead exotic lost to the annuls of history. I
personally think that subtle differences like that represent the
overall spirit of the community and add to the continuously growing
knowledge base which helps keep our dream alive.
