RayComm and TECHWR-L do not sell or distribute or
allow to become available TECHWR-L subscriber lists.
Period. Additionally, we aggressively pursue people
who misuse the TECHWR-L subscriber list. See:

Moreover, Andrew's points are correct. This issue is,
as I've said before, no longer open for discussion. Take it
offline. I will suspend posting privileges for anyone
continuing this discussion on list.

Contact me offline with questions.
