Bryan, you just don't seem to get it! This is not a democracy. Your 
assumption above is not at all correct. It does not, and has not 
limited topics in any way at all. You are free to post on topics that 
are within Brian's stated and now, finally, mildly enforced 
parameters. This is not a news group and the policy of a mailing 
list is one man's alone, the owner's.

I took a slightly different tack on the LEG. There, such posts are 
allowed any day, but I request that they be restricted to one per 
week by the poster (honor system, but watched), and kept to 
reasonable length.

A person desirous of posting FS and WTB, has the LUG, LEG, 
various news groups, and all the commercial avenues to utilize. 
Brian's concern that FS and WTB posts could bog down the 
discussion aspects (clearly the raison d'Ítre of the list) certainly 
has merit in the eyes of the only one that counts, Brian!
