I didn't suggest using Yahoo Groups, just using it as an example. I hate the ads...but then again, it's free too.
>From my experience, I've usually seen fairly good response times to posts and replies (<2 hrs). Whether it makes a difference of .us vs .au don't know. But some of the replies have been from .au addresses and were quite timely. This whole thread reminds me of when I tried to give away a working TV at a hamfest (flea market for radio equip) one year. People would pick it up, smell it, scutinize it, shake it, asked if it worked. This went on for 2 hours. Finally, I put a $1 price tag on it. It sold in less than 2 minutes, with no questions asked. The moral of the story, when something is free, you expect the world from it/for it, but if you think your getting a great buy for your money, your willing to accept almost any flaw.
