Hi Seth,

I'm sorry to see anyone leave the list or the hobby for any reason, but
especially because of comments made on the list.

I strongly agree with Rob.  Hang on to some of your favorite toys. You
never know when you might want to play with them again. I have a lot of
regrets from letting go a lot of equipment that I might never find again.
