Then there was the time Doug Clark got mad at me and got Travis to start 
another list. I think it had something to do with KPP crashing AnimalFarm.

Yes, before I was on the Board at WISPA, they had hosted "manufacturer" 
listservs. Chuck, was the moderator of the list for "motorola" at the time, and 
his list was moved over. I wanted to host a MikroTik@ list, as I was a vendor 
at the time for WISPA. That's when sh!t hit the fan, some other distributors 
got butthurt, and WISPA decided that the motorola list wasn't Chuck M's, and 
the MikroTik list wasn't mine anymore. I notified Chuck M of the pending issues 
and how my list was getting ripped from under me...and before WISPA could 
notify Chuck M that his list was going to be taken over, Chuck M converted it 
to the AFMUG list, shut down the motorola@wispa list and the AFMUG list was 
born. Ahhhh...the memories :)

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.

You have to go back a long way in WISP history for how we got here…. 

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.
