Um, You know, Since the conception of Delorean World, any one has been
encouraged to submit a story, look at Aaron Posey, he has written several
stories. Any one has been free to write an article, but no one ever does,
go pick up one of your past issues, and look, its in the front in most,
and if not, it is always in the back. You also get 100$ for a full length
article, and I believe a years membership for a getaway article. I know
there are people who like the changes, I have had several people tell us
they love it, and they have gone ahead and signed up for another years
membership.

This is the exact reason I don't like them

Do the casual owner or enthusiast that just reads one of the magazines, they get a very one sided view of the DeLorean world.  Of course, those views are to benefit the vendor that published it.


BTW Erik, what you describe in your post is the DML.. We all are members for free.

Ron and Cheryl,

I will be travelling for the remainder of the week and
will only be able to acces the web early in the morning
or late at night, so you won't be seeing anything in the
way of traffic during the day until the next moderator
takes over on Monday.

We're starting to cover some old ground with the DW
magazine discussion.  An earlier post recommended 
communicating any comments about the magazine to 
the editor, which is the best way to get your message
across to someone who can actually do something 
about them.  

Mike G  Moderator of the Week
