Forums are NOT the place to ask - go to the source

(in this case) the end justified the means. It may not have been right, but it WAS effective.
I hope IPMS Aust knows. Their recent newsletter contains a MAJOR typo (Model Expo 2010 on during 24-25 Oct 2009) - hence my panic.
Many thanks, Glen. George, out...........

George, the meeting youmay be thinking of is could be the train show at Liverpool, which is held on the October long weekend.

Ed, whay cant people ask or talk about Model Expo here or anywhere else. I know when it is, I have booked in, a fellow modeller wanted to know, and he got the right answer.

Where in my post does it say you can't ask for information here? There is no reason at all that people can't ask for and pass on information here - it's a free world (mostly). The answers they get may or may not be correct. The best source for information about Model Expo is the Model Expo web site. It's easy to find and quicker than waiting for a response on a forum.

George - You can ask anyone you like but it's at the risk of getting flawed information as you have so elegantly pointed out yourself!!

>Their recent newsletter contains a MAJOR typo (Model Expo 2010 on during 24-25 Oct 2009)

Did that guy ever catch up with you about the SR-71 decals I gave you? He wanted some of what you didn't use.

Tony - My understanding of the protocols of chat room, bulletin boards and the like is that entire tracts or sentences, but not single words, in upper case is construed as shouting. I am open to correction, particularly from young teenagers who are most au fait with this.
Capitalisation of single words is usually taken as emphasis only and as George has pointed out, emphasis is necessary to steer people away from incorrect information. The Model Expo web site is unlikely to be perfect, but it's more likely to be correct than any other source.
Emphasis can be acheived by other methods but bold type and colour are not available on N54 boards and quotation and asterisk marks are ambiguous. Putting not, repeat not adopts a hectoring and militaristic attitude unsuited to the discussion. Capitalisation of the first letter just looks you don't understand grammar. Other suggestions are welcome - I have just worked out how to do italic text but I don't think it conveys the emphasis.
As Glen said - interpretation of text leads to misunderstandings.
