But this is against the principles of BIONET. Advertising using BIONET=20
resources, as it is happening more and more often, is not considered.=20
BIONET is run by people that don't earn a penny by doing that job. If=20
somebody is taking profit of that situation, I think that is unfair to=20
the BIONET staff.

So if companies are interested in using internet for advertising, they=20
should use other resources. I understand your problem of isiolation, nd=20
internet could be very useful to solve that problem. But please, not in=20
the bionet.* hierarchy.
