Over on his blog, my friend Marty McGuirk has written an excellent post about clinic etiquette. I too have witnessed this problem – not only in clinics and other physical gatherings of hobbyists, but even in virtual gatherings such as the bull sessions that take place on some hobby podcasts.
Marty’s post should be required reading for anybody attending a convention or other gathering where our fellow model railway enthusiasts put themselves in front of a crowd to share something about the hobby that they love. Attaboy, Marty!
