I have found the people on Rovernet to be wonderfully helpful and
generous. Severeal times, however, on this and other lists, when one
asks a question, the response is "join our club and you will have your
question answered" or "I'll sell you a book to answer that question".
I strongly feel that information of this nature should be in the public
domain and to restrict this information, if it is available -- or simply
requires one answer, is wrong -- particularly since I feel we need all
the help we can to keep these cars on the road.
I fully realize that a great deal of effort goes into archiving
information and people's time needs to be compensated in some fashion.
Having said that I believe any information critical to the maintenance
of these vehicles should be accessable without restriction.
