Gosh thank you. I'm not used to receiving praise on Usenet.
That's just not how people are. Usually, if people agree they

It should be the same as attaching things to an email. Perhaps
your newsreader is configured to disallow attachments, or perhaps
one of the news servers that propagated your posting has a filter
to catch attachments in non-binary groups (a filtering policy that
I would support).

you going to post a URL to a web gallery of fungi photos?
