Chaps, I am sure I am not alone in wanting to say "Please do not apologise for cross posting".  The list has said overwhelmingly that posts like this are wholly acceptable and are beneficial

Jan, I'm not singling you out here, but I have written to so many other people who apologise that I wanted to make my thoughts public in case they are useful

When I see the apology it immediately, for me, devalues the following content.  It is a piece of netiquette that has had its day.

When you have something like this to say, say it as plainly as the following paragraphs.  If you feel the need to mention that it has been cross posted, I suggest you mention at the end "This message has been posted to the following lists".  Itís simple, and adds value to the message because it was important enough for you to post it to several lists.  Those who receive it a couple of times will see that you have made the statement, and that it does not interfere with the text.

Again, I'm not singling you out, I just wanted to put my marketing hat firmly on and offer this to the list.  I'm sure a few people will disagree with me, and that is fine.  I think it is simply a topic worth airing
