Which is why I ultimately let it through. However, this person was not
subscribed to the list at the time (I don't know if he is now either).
Typically in the past I have accepted or deleted these kinds of posts based
somewhat on content. I have even gone so far as to suggest that if they truly
want their message posted, to join the list.
In the cases of Mike's picture and Kevin's PDF, the picture was interesting
from a trivial/historical perspective and I thought the list could use a shot
of humour again at the expense of bandwidth and people's inboxes. Kevin's PDF
seemed like it was appropriate under the circumstances. I may have been wrong
about that too. We have stated in the guidelines that links to files are a
perfectly acceptable alternative to attachments. I apologized because I
waffled on that, won't happen again.
