Hello rogue - welcome to JMS!
I appreciate the civil discussion, and detailed explanation regarding NASIOC's position. Glad we can all be friends while disagreeing with each other.
I remain disappointed that NASIOC has no interest in preserving the legacy of JMS threads. Given that no other members share my sentiment, I appear to have overestimated the value of that legacy. Mom burned the family photo album, and everyone shrugged.
I accept the current state, and am moving on. Further attempts to convince me that I'm wrong or defend NASIOC's position will probably just irritate me.
