Re: [Ancientartifacts] Re: Are you reading this Tim??

Hi Alfredo,
Yes, I agree with you on this. I'm afraid that more and more folks are going to leave.
In fact I was even thinking about starting up a list on Egyptian Scarabs & Amulets (again
another try), due to a certain person dropping the ball after putting up a big stink. I
don't know how many are even interested in joining up, even if I do start it.

For those folks who would like to join a list for Egyptian Scarabs & Amulets, if I get one
together, please email me off list at my email address:
