    will cease its operations in the Canadian market only. All other

    I knew A.B. was embarrassing, but this is a bit much.

    Which I'm not
    I'm not in Canada
    Did this enormous company really say "subsidiary's"?
    If so, they deserve to go out of business.


    Is there some special reason you posted this here?
    I mean, what proportion of this NG's subscribers are Canadian K-M customers?
    I mean - who cares?

  3. Is there some special reason you posted here? I'm sure there are K-M
    customers and also some Canadians in this group. They may care.

    I care. I'm Canadian and own a Konica Minolta Dimage A200. Now I have to
    purchase my accessories from the States. Yuck!

    Why should we care?
    So what? I guess you never considered this is the WORLD wide web and not the
    United States wide web?
    Well it is a digital camera newsgroup.
    Ah so we should only allow posts about what Canon and Nikon do in the USA?
    Probably people in camera who use KM products.

    Do you reply to all posts on all NG's that you don't care about? Must
    keep you quite busy.

    Ah, a Yank are you?
    Ever heard of the United Kingdom? Funnily enough, there are other
    continents than North America. There's a little one, it's called Europe.


    I couldn't give a bugger what they do in the USA frankly.

    So you must believe this is the United Kingdom wide web?
    Exactly my point.
    And another called Canada.
    Or Canada either it seems or do you think Canda and the USA are the same
    country? Guess you need to start a rec.photo.digital.slr-systems.UK ?

    Well done. And if I said I was from Abyssinia you would, impressively quick
    as a flash, have asked if I thought this was the Abyssinian Wide Web.

    I think you missed out the "little".

    I would prefer rec.photo.digital.slr-systems.abyssinia please.
