Lispm in the Sangre de Cristos
Were you not aware that this sort of direct advertising is proscribed?
No, I wasn't, but if there is any doubt about this message's
appropriateness for this mailing list, I have revoked the message.
Frankly I didn't see this message as being much different from people
offering used machines for sale on the same list, which I also thought
was an appropriate use of the list. I apologise to any I have offended.
I obviously do not understand the social etiquette of e-mail; is there a
Miss Manners of e-mail?
I think the issue is not one of etiquette (though there 1is0 certainly an
etiquette of e-mail - I have a copy of an article on this subject - I
don't think you've violated it). The people who support and administrate
the internet do not want to be doing so in direct support of commercial
enterprises, since it is government-funded. So it is the distribution
of your mail to a list that goes out over internet channels that leads
to difficulty. Stick to dialnet recipients and you'll be in the clear.
