Yes, Michael Anderson. He got pissed about the OT stuff on the motorola@ list. IIRC, shortly after the I QUIT incident, the list server went down and he said it was a h/w failure (while out of town? I don't remember if that was the case) and finally brought it back up. But it was too late and AFMUG was born. More accurately, the "Motorola II" list was born, and I believe that was hosted for a short time on the WISPA list serv?

I think the combination of WISPAmerica and Animal Farm is great.

The list was Part-15 at one time, and existed prior to WISPA.   Can’t recall 
the last name - Michael somebody ran the organization.   One day Michael was 
mad about something and posted the infamous “I quit” email - and that was 
pretty much the end of Part 15 and the list.  I actually think that was during 
a Animal Farm session if I recall correctly.

Chuck took over the list after that - I don’t think it was called AFMUG at the 
time, but it later became that.   Might have even been Motorola specific - not 
that it was ever on topic anyway.

There are WISPA lists - but the AFMUG list has lived on.   Yes - it’s Chuck’s 
list though occasionally the members donate money for the cost of hosting it.

This list has it’s advantages.   It’s membership leans toward a group of people 
who have known each other for a very long time.   You probably shouldn’t say 
bad things about WBMfg products (makes Chuck get all kranky) but everybody else 
if fair game.  I like it since it’s a place I can say things I can’t really say 
with a WISPA hat on (or at least I can’t say without blowback to WISPA).

I merge my AnimalFarm email list with my MailChimp list about once a year.

You do realize that this list is my list, right?

So essentially every time I make a posting here I am spamming you, right?

I used to do it every Friday right here on this list.
But I think it is cleaner and better quality to use MailChimp.

Did you unsubscribe from the Mail Chimp?  That will prevent it from ever
happening again.

I just got spammed by Chuck McCown. What's up with that?

I sure as hell haven't signed up for any of his email lists nor done any
business with him, or even indicate I would like to. I find it in extremely
poor taste to mine the Af list for spam targets.
