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.
