Thanks for making that point Peter.  Maybe I've just subscribed
to rather helpful newgroups in the past, but this group does seem a bit
on the helpful-only-if-I-can-toot-my-own-horn-in-the-process side.

Last week I asked a simple question, "What is the going rate for a used
JamMan?".  I received not even ONE response.  I would imagine that 80%
of you have a good idea.  Was my question too basic and "newbee" for all
you pros?
