Not that I am for or against advertisements on the list, the ads in CE, ENR,
etc. are paid for by manufacturers, vendors, etc., as are ads placed on the
SEAOC web site.  Magazine publishers rely on advertising to make money (far
more so than subscription prices). Ads posted to the list are essentially
"free," and many consider it a form of spam.

Just my 2 cents
