This Digest Article Was Spam!

Telecom Digest has gone off-topic before, and many of us have kept
quiet. But in the anti-spam spirit of the digest, some of us would
appreciate not having additional advertising included, particularly in
the form of "articles".

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Thanks for your comments on this. I
frequently print messages about things 'for sale' of a telecom nature,
simply because the items for sale are peculiar enough to telecom that
the people here _might_ be interested where in other forums there
might not be any interest. In this instance, I was _told_ the items
were surplus and it seemed to me there might be some interest in them
among Digest readers. I am sorry if it gave some readers more the
appearance of spam.

It is indeed unfortunate, IMO, that there is not a classification on
the net for '.spam' since there is so much of it everywhere. 'They'
(net authorities) have categories for so many new phenomena on the net
these days including '.biz' and '.info' much of which amounts to spam
anyway, but 'they' refuse to offer categories for actual '.spam'
and/or '.scam' and '.xxx' (.sex) which is also plentiful.
Go figure ... PAT]
