Apologies. I confused your name with that of a "Nicolas" in another forum.

By what standards?  There's a whole hell of a difference between
plaintext ads and html/animatedgif/javascript bs.  You're missing the
point I fear...
I'm not missing a point, I'm making one.

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 animated advertisements on Web pages, where I've come to expect them even if I don't like them). Rather, it's the injection of commercial messages into an otherwise non-commercial forum to which I object.
