This is the easiest way to handle the spam.

Sorry Tarl i'm the moderator and I'm dealing with several hundred spams a 
week, so real messages don't always get through.

Agreed. Sun's been doing IEEE 1275 for well over a decade, and
only once did I ever deal with a vendor who even knew what FCode
was. The essence is if you need FCode on the cards, you need to
have a plan on how to get it there yourself.

[ I don't know if this will make it to the alias; the last message
   I sent got a return saying "being held waiting for moderator".]
