This is not a criticism, or a stab at anyone I'd first like to make known,but what I do see plenty, is people writing to me and countless others no doubt, surrounding information on this that or the other topic within our hobby,that I feel would be just great posted on our forums publicly.
I'm not talking about sensitive matters here or anything that would or could jeopardize an imminent deal for someone, just general pointers to certain aspects of our machines or films etc.
Things which, as I say, would equally provide the rest of the collecting community with some pointers and useful tips at times, through our own experiences, often for better or worse at times (we've all been there).
Can anyone possibly explain to me why people do at times, appear to be a little apprehensive about posting queries and the likes on our forums for all to view and learn from?
I just feel its such a shame, that often at times,only two people get to learn anything from these types of conversations, that's all.
Our shared experiences in the hobby,teach us everything.
We'd all be lost without one another at times.
I suppose the real question is, what do you feel makes film collectors just so very secretive at times, even about things that really don't need to be?
Your thoughts please?
