I agree wholeheartedly with Bill. Advertising is not obtrusive on this list, and I value the
opportunity to learn of anything that I might not hear about from any other source, whether it
be a new book, an open day, a talk at a local historical/archaeological society or even (once a
year) a new calendar. Advertising execs would probably not even recognise it as such.
Publicising would perhaps be more accurate term.

I am more a lurker than a contributor, but I don't find the advertisements
to be a problem. Nearly all involve books or other materials appropriate
to the list. I appreciate knowing of such opportunities. I also do not
find the "friendly commentaries" and replies on such posts to be too much
although some might. People on the list know one another and that comes
through. This is a community of people with common interests and I like
it that way, As my students say--just saying, This is an active, but not
overly active list.
