From: "David Scribner" <david@blackiris.com> Date: Mon, 20 Mar 2000 17:56:10 -0600   First of all, even though I am writing as a member of the list and not as the Administrator, I do want to thank everyone for their cooperation in quieting down the bit of a "flame-war" we had going on. I appreciate it.   I think Joe Nichols in his post answered this question very well with the way his firm deals with the count of stops and ranks in an instrument and I think you will find that all of the reputable firms operate in a similar manner. However, there are firms out there who do not operate in this fashion and I think that we all know or have heard the horror stories from some of the doings of these firms. In my opinion, when you are dealing with a firm for the first time it pays to do a little research first and avoid the problems later.   Although not all the firms are members of APOBA, and you can find out for yourself who the members are by going to their web site - http://www.apoba.com/ - most, if not all of the truly reputable firms are either owned by or employ members of the American Institute of Organbuilders which does have some criteria for membership.   Joe, in his post, did mention that the AIO Code of Ethics is posted on the AIO web site and i will elaborate a bit on that. Putting on another one of my "hats", this time as WebMaster for the AIO, you will find that the site has been GREATLY updated recently and includes a list of all Members of the AIO along with Membership information and information about the certification process that is conducted by the organization. And for those that might be interested there is information about the quarterly publication - "The Journal of American Organbuilding" and about the upcoming Convention in Colorado Springs, CO in October to which everyone is welcome to attend. Please feel free to visit the site at: http://www.pipeorgan.org and use it as a reference.   Happy Chatting,   David
