<DIV></DIV>&gt;&gt;Of course!
<DIV></DIV>&gt;&gt;My opinion, that i expressed many times is that meteorite are
<DIV></DIV>&gt;&gt; &gt;scientific
<DIV></DIV>&gt;&gt;matter first. <SNIP>but I think it is particularly unfair &gt;to use
<DIV></DIV>&gt;&gt;NWAXXX.&gt;When one starts to enter the commercial game, I think &gt;that
<DIV></DIV>&gt;&gt;minimum of ethic is neccessary.
<DIV></DIV>&gt;&gt;Best wishes
<DIV></DIV>&gt;Franco - take your weird form of ethics and crap comments about
<DIV></DIV>&gt;interest and give them to some nomad to bury in the sahara desert
<DIV></DIV>&gt;where they
<DIV></DIV>&gt;can get a proper burial. If you genuinely beleived your rhetoric
<DIV></DIV>&gt;that they
<DIV></DIV>&gt;are above all "scientific first" you would gladly offer every new
<DIV></DIV>&gt;that you find for free to the scientific community before offering
<DIV></DIV>&gt;them for
<DIV></DIV>&gt;sale and only sell them after the scientific community picked out
<DIV></DIV>&gt;the ones
<DIV></DIV>&gt;that have no scientific value.
<DIV></DIV>&gt;You are involved in meteorites because you are hoping to make money
<DIV></DIV>&gt;them. No more, no less. Its money. And not because you want to find
<DIV></DIV>&gt;answer to some great cosmic mystery of the universe.
<DIV></DIV>&gt;I dont like many of the activities that go on in the sahara desert
<DIV></DIV>&gt;any more
<DIV></DIV>&gt;than you do. But I do support the reasons behind them and we
<DIV></DIV>&gt;wouldent have
<DIV></DIV>&gt;as many meteorites found if everything had to be on the up and up
<DIV></DIV>&gt;100% like
<DIV></DIV>&gt;what you claim as your "ethics and scientific value" notions would
<DIV></DIV>&gt;So go back out into the sahara desert and find more meteorites the
<DIV></DIV>&gt;way that
<DIV></DIV>&gt;you run your meteorite business as per your business decisions. And
<DIV></DIV>&gt;others involved in their own saharan meteorite business operate the
<DIV></DIV>&gt;way that
<DIV></DIV>&gt;they have decided to run their own business. At least everybody else
<DIV></DIV>&gt;is up
<DIV></DIV>&gt;front about how they do things and dont go around calling everybody
<DIV></DIV>&gt;unethical because their business operation is not exactly the same
<DIV></DIV>&gt;as your
<DIV></DIV>&gt;business operation.
<DIV></DIV>&gt;Come to think of it, you dont have any ethics in the first place to
<DIV></DIV>&gt;give to
<DIV></DIV>&gt;some nomad to bury in the sahara desert. They all got thrown out
<DIV></DIV>&gt;between 50 cents and $12 a gram.
