The recent very lengthy posting by "ruud de vries" (rdv@euronet.nl) is a
perfect example of an unfortunate posting -- I doubt that he really wanted
to send a copy of the Windows version of CU-SeeeMe to each and every of the
almost 1300 folks on this list.

On the other hand, his "signature" file and his request for money to be
sent to a bank account in Holland represent another unfortunate aspect of
his posting.

Speaking for myself, I sincerely hope that no CU-SeeMe user makes a mistake
and considers his request for money to be related in ANY WAY to CU-SeeMe or
to Cornell University. Quite frankly, an one who sends money because of
such a request might as well just burn it instead; at least some warmth
would result.

Sorry for this tirade, but that sort of posting makes this list much less
valuable and hardly worth the time to read. It seems clear that it really
should be a "moderated" list, except that we don't have the resources to
moderate it and weed out the junk postings.
