	It's this kind of thing that threatens to make Usenet a Home
	Shopping Channel without the pictures.  See below and please
	refrain from indulging your temptations in the future.

	Thank you.

	[Not to mention that your posting had nothing to do with plant
	 biology.]

              A Primer on How to Work With the USENET Community
                             Chuq Von Rospach 



  *** You now have access to Usenet, a network of thousands of
  computers.  Other documents or your system administrator will provide
  detailed technical documentation.  This message describes the Usenet
  culture and customs that have developed over time.  All new users should
  read this message to find out how Usenet works. ***
  *** (Old users could read it, too, to refresh their memories.)  ***

  USENET is a large collection of computers that share data with each
  other.  It is the people on these computers that make USENET worth
  the effort to read and maintain, and for USENET to function properly
  those people must be able to interact in productive ways.  This
  document is intended as a guide to using the net in ways that will
  be pleasant and productive for everyone.

  This document is not intended to teach you how to use USENET.
  Instead, it is a guide to using it politely, effectively and
  efficiently.

[...]

           Please do not use Usenet as an advertising medium.

  Advertisements on Usenet are rarely appreciated.  In general, the louder
  or more inappropriate the ad is, the more antagonism it will stir up.
  The accompanying posting "Rules for posting to Usenet" has more on this
  in the section about "Announcement of professional products or services".
  Try the biz.* hierarchies instead.

This message describes some of the rules of conduct on Usenet.  The rules
vary depending on the newsgroup.  


[...]

There exists an alternative hierarchy called "biz" specifically for
commercial postings.  See the articles "Alternative Newsgroup
Hierarchies, Part I" and "Alternative Newsgroup Hierarchies, Part II",
posted periodically to several newsgroups, including news.announce.newusers.
You can also get these articles by sending a mail message to
mail-server at rtfm.mit.edu with the lines:
        send usenet-by-group/news.answers/alt-hierarchies/part1
        send usenet-by-group/news.answers/alt-hierarchies/part2
