Good Morning Uwe.
I've just looked back at the last few print exchanges. Participation has settled at 10-12 regular participants. I suspect a negative exchange will attract excatly the same folk,...

Good evening Frank.
I hadn't come across the idea of a 'serial' negative exchange.
That is, a single negative being passed from person to person with each taking turns printing it.
