“‘Growing’ ‘promoting’ ‘pushing’ ‘whatever’ the hobby” if I hear that one more time I may just do someone an injury. I am in the hobby for me. It is my hobby, for my pleasure. The fact that it has a social aspect is neither here nor there. I feel under no obligation to evangelise, so stop &*%@!/$ telling me I should.
Now, get off my lawn!
