In fact, I *did* delete your message because I'm not interested. At the
same time, I appreciate the fact that you have always been so responsible
about posting this info. I foolishly assumed that all the followups were
people saying "I want to order a tape!" as has happened in the past.

I'm stunned that anyone would attack Bonni for posting a resource that was
clearly labeled as such. Why not attack the bozos who post job ads without
putting the location in the subject header? That offends me a lot more.
It's not like Bonni is flaunting her own personal services!

And in fact, I think I'd even approve of someone doing that once. Those
who think the net will die because of advertising are either short-sighted
or haven't been on the net very long. It's not my favorite thing, but I've
made use of many services that I found on the Internet. (Web pages and a
credit card are a bad combination.:) ) Spamming and advertising are
different. It's not like Bonni posted this to 11,000 newsgroups or
anything...she posted one notice, about a *service* that she's provided
gratis for over a year.
