Some have asked, "What's my Contribution used for?", and this is certainly
a valid question. Here are just a few examples of what your direct List
support enables. It provides for the very expensive, business-class,
high-speed T1 Internet connection used on the List, insuring maximum
performance and minimal contention when accessing List services. It pays
for the regular system hardware and software upgrades enabling the highest
performance possible for services such as the Archive Search Engine and
List Browser. It pays for 16+ years worth of online archive data available
for instant random access. And, it offsets the many hours spent writing,
developing, and maintaining the custom applications that power this List
Service such as the List Browse, Search Engine, and PhotoShare.
But most importantly, your List Contribution enables a forum where you and
your peers can communicate freely in an environment that is free from
moderation, censorship, advertising, commercialism, SPAM, and computer
viruses. How many places on the Internet can you make all those statements
about these days? I will venture to say - next to none...
It is YOUR CONTRIBUTION that directly enables these many desirable aspects
of this most valuable List service. Please support it today with your List
Contribution. Its the best investment you can make in your Sport - BAR NONE!
