Re: [Chrysler300] The test

I too love the usefulness of the listserver, and have received valuable advice, found parts and answers to questions, learned interesting and informative things on a myriad of subjects through the listserver. I also consider it a valuable asset.
I take exception with one comment you made -- saving the download time, memory, disk space and potential threats to my computer by not downloading attachments. When I retrieve my e-mail messages, all attachments are DL'd along with the message text -- automatically. I don't know if that is true with Webmail or not, but it sure is with my client e-mail program, and most client-based e-mail programs.
Members can e-mail images directly to other members -- as it stands now. I vote for not changing the status quo on images and attachments.

Personally, I LOVE the list server.  I've received very valuable advice, and really enjoy reading all of the comments.  I've also found some critical parts I needed, and made helpful contacts with other members.  So, I consider the list server a very valuable asset associated with being a club member.

However, the one thing that has always disappointed me is the lack of images.  To me, it would be so helpful and interesting to actually see everyone's car, project, thing they had a question about, etc.  I belong to two other Yahoo Groups, and both allow it.  Same with a multitude of forums I've visited.  Collectively on those groups we all enjoy visual exchange of information.

If images could be included as attachments, if security or speed of downloading is a concern, one could always choose to simply not open the attachment.  For that matter, it takes perhaps a half second to read a subject line and delete the entire email if it is not of interest.  That's a simple solution to avoid overloading inboxes.

I see the fundamental purpose of the list server as communication, and as much as I appreciate even having the list server, an ability to conveniently engage in visual communication would make it just that much better, in my opinion.

Speaking as a retired systems analyst, I agree with Bob's reluctance. Bob should continue with his reluctance, and change nothing regarding images.
Secondarily, I have enough stuff coming into my system daily without images adding to the bulk. Text take very little disk space, memory and download time. Let's leave things as they are.

Hi Don,

You guys are spinning your wheels. Bob or you need to go to the Yahoo Groups and change the preferences to allow jpgs. 

I have had this discussion with Bob before and he is reluctant to allow photos for security reasons.
