Despite the disclaimer, this is still not allowed by the rules of the Dinosaur
] a) Attempting to use the list for advertising fossils

] The first such infraction is using the list as a means to aid in the selling
] or buying of fossils. All of us involved in list maintenance feel quite
] that the list's resources should not be used for that purpose. If you 
] advertise a fossil for sale (even if you're not the one who'll be collecting
] the money) you may be removed from the list without warning. If you pass 
] along a message that is not explicitly an advertisement but serves to 
] alert others of a location where an advertisement can be found -- even if 
] you're mentioning the advertisement only to lament its existence -- you 
] will be warned not to do so again. If you repeat such an infraction and I 
] have even the slightest suspicion that you did so in willful disregard of
]  the list's policies you will be permanently removed from the list.

As Mickey previously informed the list, I will be taking over as list
deputy during his absences, and his policies are my policies.  No 
references to fossil sales, no matter what the venue.
