Not intending to flame, at all.  Your point is valid... sort of.  If I 
recall the person said that there was so much other off-topic stuff on 
the list that his adveritsement would make no difference.  What if some 
other people thought, "Well, he posted his advertisement, they won't mind 
if I posted mine."  Then what do we have?  A CircleMUD listing, not a 
coder/admin mailing list.  There's other people out there that have the 
same mind set as the original poster (which is incorrect, IMHO...  it's 
like saying just because some guy commits a crime you can go ahead and do 
it, too).

This is not the appropriate forum for advertising.  If they want to 
advertise, they can have someone else post on the newsgroups for them or 
advertise via Andrew's MUD Connector (  Not to 
mention getting their address placed on one of the several other MUD 
lists out there.  They are in no way limited to just mailing their 
advertisement here, so that eliminates that excuse.  There's no excuses left.
