I quit posting  on  the EVDL list sometime ago when I understood my  
work with ClipperCreek CS 100 units to charge Tesla Model  S cars here  
in Hills, MN, did not fit the rules.

Being born in 1941, I too have concerns about the downside of Tesla  
"ownership', but I bought a Model 3 since I can write it off with my  
business and I can charge it off my tracking solar PV system. I am  
equally concerned about the planned obsolescence engineered into  
modern ICE cars and the cost and availability of parts and mechanics  
in the future, Therefore, I also drive a 1929 Model A Ford tudor. I am  
not a mechanic, but I can fix it, I own it, it s basic and parts are  
readily available. Five million were made so old and new parts are  
available.

Actually, the EVDL has never enforced any rules in regards to where or what kind of work you are allowed to do when contributing to the list.  For instance in my career I have bounced back and forth between being a programmer and an IT administrator in the Portland Or area and I have never been told I could not post to the list because of it :)

Rules ClarificationRe: (no subject)

Electric Vehicle Discussion List mailing list
  Quoting Damon Henry via EV <[hidden email]>:

Thanks for the reply.  I was probably overreacting  to the comments  
about work with Lee Hart's Sunrise as being commercial.  No doubt, my  
enthusiasm about being able to charge 5 Teslas here in our little town  
in MN led to confusion on my part. Since then, nearby Sioux Falls SD,  
has gained multiple Tesla Supercharger units. That said, *for now*,  
our CS 100 units cannot compete.

Re: Rules ClarificationRe: (no subject)

Electric Vehicle Discussion List mailing list
The guidelines (not exactly rules) on EV business on the EVDL don't say
anything about where you work being a problem.

Here's what they DO say.

The EVDL is a noncommercial, informational resource. We don't allow it to be
used for selling stuff. This includes posts that mainly promote a product or
its website.

That said, where would we be without parts to build our EVs? We need
reputable vendors and manufacturers of EV parts, products, and services for
hobbyists. If you're one, you're welcome on the EVDL, but we ask that you
follow a few guidelines:

    No unprompted mentions. Don't post just to mention your products and/or
services. Bring them up only when an existing conversation (thread) makes
the discussion appropriate and natural. We're a bit flexible on this for
long-time members, as long as it's done judiciously and tastefully. However,
spamming is absolutely verboten. If you subscribe just to advertise, I
guarantee that you'll be shown the door.

    No promotional language. Announce and discuss your products and services
only in factual, value-neutral terms (like NPR and PBS sponsorship
announcements). Save the glowing descriptions for your own website.

    No stealth mentions. If you're involved with a business that figures in
your post, say so, and tell us what your involvement is.

    Not too often. How often is too? Well, for example, if every time
someone asks about controllers, you post about the controllers you have for
sale, that's probably too often.

    Support users of your products and services on the EVDL. This is not
optional.

    As best you can, also take part in general EV help and support, even
when it's unrelated to your products and/or services. Many times, folks who
build EV components have a long history in EVs, and a wealth of knowledge
they can and should share with our members. It's in your own best interests
anyway, because users you help are that much more apt to become your
customers, no?
