There's no need to send huge attachments; they clog up our inboxes and
the internet. It's much more efficient and quite easy to post files of
interest on a web site for people who may be interested to download.

As already explained to Chas offlist, I have been archiving the list
since 2000 (call it collector compulsion, a personal archive allows for
more flexible searches than the available web services). Every time I
update my main machine I move all my mail, including the list archive.
Regular large attachments will force me to abandon this habit, since I
will be less happy to move around gigs of mail.
Some stats fun: the "incriminated" message (11M) is around 2000 times
the median size of the mails sent to the list since 2000 (5K) and around
2 years of messages.
I would be more than happy if the list server allowed subscribers to
decide whether to receive attachments above a specified size.
All the best,

I found the paper I got from Chaslav over the reflector very intersting
and this paper certainly falls in the category "high quality and of
general interest". And indeed with all these high speed connections and
large computer storage this should be no problem. Why not allow it and
see if we can self regulate?

Pierre, I will send you the article in a separate email since I was so
publicly reminded that this list should not be used for attachments.
If anybody else needs this or other SII (AI) articles let me know.
Also, I will try to put some of those on www.sii.to in the next few
days. At this day and age with virtually unlimited storage, fast DSL,
and a the delete function on the keyboard it is hard to justify that
journal articles should not be enclosed.
