That was more about my observations over the last while as someone who is quite new to this
type of community, and has read mire email threads in the last several months then I care
to admit, lol.

My goal in this has been achieved, which is getting enough interest in linking to books.

The HOW aspect is the real point of contention and I feel both methods/mindsets stem from
the very valid vision of the ideal community. This thread is going to set a major precedent
and I'm starting to think we should open this up to the larger list as we are ultimately discussing
how close we are willing to get to non-ASF materials.

I see this as similar to the case studies, and nascar user page discussions. 

Despite the willingness of people to cast 0 votes, it is obvious that there are strong and
valid feelings towards both sides of our current HOW options.

I don't think this is an "either/or" situation. What's needed, IMHO, is
an approach that promotes the technology and community, and eschews
corporate branding and sales mentality. 

Best,
