I read with some dismay Laurent Labrot missive concerning the Rick "hermetically sealed" Meints. While I have massive amounts of sympathy with individuals who are out there looking for RQ2 stuff.

I felt it was very much biting the hand that feeds you. Rick offered some very good advice here on the digest to people searching for products and I know from personal experience Rick helps a lot of people track down treasured manuscripts they are missing.

So instead of attacking someone who is trying to help, try being polite even if the advice is not what you want to hear. I couldn't agree more with the idea that Chaosium should sell this RQ2 stuff as acrobat files or plain .txt files that you download of the web, but what rick mentioned about trawling the auctions is good advice and should be treated with kindness. Using the argument that he from the USA and doesn't understand European problems is insulting,derogotory, and racist. Are you perhaps going to say my point is void because I am English and I don't live in France. Get a life, and while your at it learn some manners. Rick has been living in the UK for over 2 years now and has taken a very active involvement in Glorantha, taking over from me as designer for Tales, being one of the designers of TradeTalk (schattenklinge) and being almost default auctioner at Glorantha Cons and Convulsions. He also is the author of the MiG. He is out there trying to help, you are bitching that you need to do illegal photocopies. Grow up.

PS: Yes, Rick is my Boss, can I have a pay rise please. ;)
