    Gee whiz, wish *I* could get  away with this kind of message...

    Were you not aware that this sort of direct advertising is proscribed?

Actually, I don't know if it is, in fact, prohibited, anymore.
This isn't the dARPAnet anymore.  Note all the hosts ending in ".COM";
they're commercial companies, who pay the costs of their pieces of the
network.  Various pieces of the Internet are semi-commercially operated,
and there's even the potential for competition!

I don't know what the rules are anymore, but I wouldn't automatically
assume they're the same as they used to be.
