Now there's a noble cause if ever there was one.  I know there is an 
Autojumble e-mail list on the server, but it only has a few 
hundred subscribers (and I'm not one of them).  A web site can also 
be found with a search engine where e-mail lists may not be in the 
public domain (without registering).  One moderate web site with a 
number of small vendors may be a better attraction on the net than 
several small independent web sites (a sort of synergy).  It's easier 
to make a single bookmark, and maybe nice to find a nuber of related 
products in one place.  I don't have anything to vend, but I think 
it's a good idea anyway.
