I tend to side with you, although I don't mind a little advertising if it's
for a specialty item, or one particularly hard to get that closely pertains
to the topic of the message base. As an example, I do appreciate knowing
someone who has true SAE's for sale, or someone who will ship you Yamato Ebi
at a reasonable price. However, I agree with you that generic advertising,
i.e., "all brands of filters now 10% off...." is crossing the line into
commercial advertising, and I think it's inappropriate.
