I agree with Chris.  A single advert or reviews of the books concerned are 
fine; it is the dozens of inane comments that follow, regarding spelling or 
the merit or otherwise of postings (eg the many emails that are flying 
around over this topic) that are unacceptable.  Time to put a stop to this 
childish, time-wasting practice Peter.

Personally I'm happy to see stuff as long as it remains "within reason".
If / when someone crosses the line there are enough crotchety old
buggers on this circulation list (well there's me at least...) waiting
for an opportunity to scold a miscreant.

Hello,

As someone who also reads more than they post on this list I feel moved
to say I would be strongly against the banning of notifications relating
to new publications and the like. For me they are both useful and
interesting, and really don't amount to a large quantity of emails.

I would also point out that funds for the calendar are going to
worthwhile causes and, in my opinion, the wider the advertising for such
things the better - especially given the financial difficulties faced by
many charitable organisations at present.

As a compromise emails about such things could include in the subject
heading 'notification' or 'advert' or some agreed term, then those list
members who wish to avoid them can set their own accounts to filter them
straight to junk mail - as it appears the majority would prefer to still
have access to this information?

Dear List

My understanding of the Mining History Network is to discuss and answer
mining related enquires.  So may I enquire why we have to put up with
all the advertising on this site?

Is it possible for the members of the lists concerned to create their
own email list to advertise books, calendars, ebay, etc instead of using
this discussion network?  Personally I think advertising on this network
should be banned, and would like to see the site owners take steps to
address this problem.

Regards Chris Kelland
