So, this means no "check out eBay #...." too, right?

This rule seems un-necessarily draconian to me, but if you're going to do it, it would only be consistent to apply it to eBay as well.

There is no rule requiring list members to read _every_ posting. I certainly don't. Those who aren't interested in this sort of thing can just click "delete." Works for me.
