ucdavis!auditory(at)VM1.MCGILL.CA ucdavis!netad(at)uds01.st.it From: marva4!pdivenyi (Pierre Divenyi) Message-Id: <9308231655.AA16463(at)marva4.UUCP> To: ucdavis!uds01.st.it!netad Subject: Re: The Net ADvertiser Are we witnessing an intrusion of commercialism in our pristine academic-oriented altruistic-inclined workgroup? Is Internet degenerating? Will NetAdvertiser-type pull-out-all-the-stops salesmanship eventually overtake Internet? Or will commercial interest make it necessary for whomever has so far ensured free (I mean, totally free!) access to the network to question whether it should be, indeed, free for everyone, all over the globe? I, personally, found the submission coming from Italy offensive and urge all Audlist members with similar feelings to speak up. Please, please, no ads in my mailbox -- I have enough of it at home and at my office, courtesy of US Mail that subsidizes commercial advertisements. Pierre Divenyi
