By what standards? There's a whole hell of a difference between
point I fear...
Your unwillingness to pay for a service results in a cost borne by all the
recipients of your messages. It's not the perceived degree of blatantness
to which I object (I've become quite able to ignore all the flashing

if I don't like them). Rather, it's the injection of commercial messages
into an otherwise non-commercial forum to which I object.
