Also consider this, autox.team.net has 90 mail lists on it, and 15000
individual subscribers.  Each message that is sent that is inappropriate to
the lists cuts down on the time available to process on topic posts that
the lists were set up for.  Oletrucks is one of those, and you will be
slowing down your own oletruck email.

The choice is yours......

Sorry Tom, your $0.02 doesn't count for much here.  I refuse to let ebay
ads on this list for reasons I made very clear in the past, namely, ebay is
a paid for service and its users already get plenty of advertising, no need
to clutter this list by giving "vendors" yet another venue, especially one
so specifically tuned.  If you are a member of the list and you have an
auction, you can make mention of it.  Not your auction?  No posting.

End of discussion.  Next person to bring it up will suffer from countless
oil leaks in their oletruck, I've contacted Mala the Voodoo Queen and she
has cast a spell on this message, once read, you're infected.
