Hi! I'm Eric, the owner of the list you posted your ad to.
As you saw in the rules you got when you subscribed (12/18),
ads are prohibited on this list. I'm sending you an invoice
separately and have permanently revoked your posting privileges.
As you know, TECHWR-L is supported by ad revenue. I strongly encourage
you to patronize advertisers on this list because they help keep
this resource available to you. People like Jim, who attempt to
evade the (relatively nominal) charges for ads, undermine the
list for everyone and these actions will, left unchecked, result
in TECHWR-L ceasing to exist.
