I'm a subscriber to the NEW-LIST ML (a place to announce new mailing
lists), and there are a few people on here that "spam" you with "I saw
your ad on the NEW-LIST, come try this out!" etc. It never ceases to
amaze me to what levels people will stoop to.

A GOOD THING ABOUT A SHORT MEMORY; enjoy the same newspaper for a month
