Re: [ARSCLIST] The Incompetence at ENHS

"We would all be well advised...." Yes sheep you must all listen to Mr. Newton. But can somebody on the ARSCLIST explain to me why the entire ENHS archive is not already available on the internet. If Mr. Seubert and the UCSB can put up such an amazing cylinder site why can't the federal government do a better job with the great treasure that is the ENHS archive? And if they can't why don't the make their archive copies available as promised? Beginning tomorrow I will start putting the 160 CDs containing 4,000 recordings from the ENHS archives up on youTube just to show how easy it is. Shouldn't the world be able to hear the over 400 cds of transfers that are there? Wouldn't you like to hear a box full of 1890's cylinders at the ENHS labeled "for mixed company only"? This is not about the princely sum of $5.00 Mr. Newton, which is what you offered me for a 1940s WOR recording of Superman's intro on red vinyl that I later sold for $300.00. If YOU dont want to get involved that is fine. What concern is it of yours what anyone else does?

It is interesting to note that the web site listed in this message responds that it is no longer available.

I'm not sure that this kind of "dirty linen" complaint belongs on the ARSC list.

There are always two sides to every story and without input from the other side, this must be discarded... we are not arbitrators or mediators for this kind of gripe.

As a list moderator, I got sucked into mediating such a complaint a short time ago, only to ultimately find that it involved the princely sum of $5 and wasted a lot of my time. As did happen in this case, the complainent posted his grievance on a few related mail lists and solicited the readers to get involved.

We would all be well advised to let Mr. Loughlin hire a legal mouthpiece to fight his battles for him.
