Jattie van der Linde <spam_OUTjattievdlTakeThisOuTspamISCORLTD.CO.ZA>  sent some large files to
the list which I for one didn't want..

Is this sort of posting allowed in the list?

Can it be prevented somehow?

I sent mine back to the originator in an email attachment

An interesting question - I looked at the files and they contained a
very useful 16C84 programmer application from Microchip, but since the
sender didn't say what they were I guess they would be more of a pain to
most people - especially those running out of disc space.

Gee what a funny bunch of guys. Please help me here. I was trying to be
polite, share what I have. The files I've attached was in there original
format with all the shareware details and freeware details included.

Microchip software is supplied to all free of charge. As they say, they
sel silicon, not Software. I already appologised to the mediatorfor
sending software to the discussion list.

Maybe a set of rules should be send to every new user who signs up.

my service provider decided to give an unreliable service this morning,
hence I took over 40 minutes and 3 attempts to download the posting and
I have a v34 modem (usually connects at 24,000, sometimes 26,400
on a good day).I's not even a local call for me. Ok, well done
Jattie for responding to Onat's questions and maybe some people
might well also find the files useful, but I for one would rather have avoided
the exercise.... in future could we use something like pointers to ftp sites or sending direct to the thread originator with a posting of "anyone else want a copy?" (maybe posting it if there is sufficient demand?)?

regards,

I had a similar problem and believe me, I wasn't going to be so polite
with my message about it!!!

I see that others have commented and this saves me all the foul language.
The use of pointers is good and there are several people on the PICLIST
who would ablige with web space if it was PIC related. I absolutly agree
with Andy David's remarks.

I had to telnet in and delete the offending file. This sort of stuffing
around is not something I want to be doing a 12.15AM.

Maybe it was a one-off mistake. Perhaps a set of rules should be
send to every new user who signs up as Jattie van der Linde suggested.
Or maybe people just  ought to be more thoughtful. A formal set of rules
would take more than it would add...
