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
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.
