   I disagree. As long as the stuff being advertised is within the realm
of classic computers it's appropriate to advertise it here and it is
permitted by the guidelines for this mail list. I for one don't have the
time to sort through all of the GARBAGE in the news-groups.

  The one thing that does piss me off is when people sell stuff on one of
the high cost services like E-bay but place ads for it here. But I must
admit that I've done it too.

   My $0.02 worth,
