subject:Net AD... how to stop date: 8/23/93 time:6:24 PM There are some opinions being aired in this group in support of not getting commercial junk email, and people are posting to auditory to remove their name from this Net AD... mailing list. I don't know for a fact, but I think one needs to voluntarily subscribe to get on their list--HOWEVER the fact that they have posted to this group, and probably many others as well, for the purpose of advertising a commercial product (a list, for which fees are charged to sellers) may be in violation of Internet rules. But the main reason I'm writing is to say that posting to this group asking to be removed from these folk's mailing list PROBABLY is a waste of time, and those interested in communicating their wishes to not be on their list (or to complain) may want to reply only to the original advertisement. -Bob
