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.
