    Thanks, and also for your statement about HTML postings. It is according
    to common sense how to behave in usenet, no reason to discuss about that
    again and again. There is simply no need for HTML (I think some people
    are still using ASCII mailreaders and do not want to change) or mail
    attachments. If its usefusl, this can be done by mail afterwards.

    I have to read the mailinglist also for business reasons, to get
    information about applications and needs of our potential clients, but I
    expect of all the other competitors, to recognize, that a mailinglist is
    no place for advertising campaigns.

    BTW, if the listserver can not prevent for abuse, the readers of this
    mailinglist can.

    best regards
