SLRMAN: Manual Focus SLR Mailing
SLRMAN is the mailing list for ALL makes of Manual Focus SLRs in ALL formats,
for BOTH users and collectors. If you prefer the "old fashioned"
precision of real metal instead of plastic, of actually controlling the focus yourself
instead of being a slave to the camera, this is the list for you. How wide is
the format range? I'm not sure, but off hand I can think of the Pentax 110 to the Graflex
It is list policy to
protect your privacy. List membership is only visible to
the list owner. Archived messages are readable only by list
members. The list subscriber list will not be sold, nor shared,
nor will SPAM be added to list messages.
SLRMAN was created November 9, 2000 at Topica, and
transferred to CameraQuest.org on April 4th, 2004
Thanks for Joining!
Flaming and uncivil behavior
on the list is strongly discouraged. Flame posts will get you removed
from the list. Spirited discussion is strongly encouraged, but
be nice to each other.
Please stay on topic with
manual focus SLRS and
photography related posts. Save discussion for such topics as hats, underwear,
war crimes, religion, etc for your private email, instead of uselessly cluttering the
inboxes of List members who subscribed for ON topic discussions.
Email diarrhea: Some lists are
occasionally "attacked" by overzealous members who think they must respond to
practically every post. Please limit your postings to no more
than five per day.
Witty replies: Some lists have
members under the delusion that everyone subscribed to read their often ill conceived
attempts at humor and quick repartee. Please save smart-ass replies for private
email, or the stage if you really are a comedian.
Selling and Buying: Private sellers
or buyers may post their ads any day, but limit your ads to once per week.
Dealer for sale or buying posts of any kind of ads are not allowed, a standard
which I will also follow. If you have questions about something for sale or
wanted, email the person privately instead of posting your question to the list.
Subscribers with anti-SPAM software may NOT require each list poster to
authenticate a message. IF you can't simply authenticate the list, get
new anti-SPAM software, or find another mailing list.
People removed for
not following list guidelines may also be removed from other CameraQuest lists.
People booted off are generally not given warnings, the logic being that if
subscribers don't take the time to read and follow the list guidelines, the
list administrator's time is better spent elsewhere.
