You hit the nail right on the head.  My AOL connection (and I do have a
"real" ISP as well) was set up wrong and the spam was a collection I was
seeing on my first few visits.  They have considerably lessened and I have
increase my file survival time to a week.

No big brother, just bonehead brother on my part...I panicked and thought
there was a moderator who did not like commercial sites.  Alas and alack,
not even a moderator...

This is fun and you can't run me off with a stick.  It wont hurt my
traffic either. 

"Gravely Underused" is an understatement.  This forum goes all over the
world and the Internet is the communiction package of the future.  Only a
matter of time before the bomb goes off and we foresters need to be in the fray.

Oh by the way, I checked sci.agriculture and there has to be 100 posts a
day.  I grab my hat and hang my head in shame.
