I'm glad they were adressed during that time. From the wording used, I
wasn't sure if they had been addressed though and wanted clarification.

Hmm. I believe the Ansteorran rules stated that ftp sites were also
recognized under these conditions. I will have to check again.

I rather like it and since our Kingdom Chronicler is in agreement with

I'm sorry if there was confusion. *I* as his deputy was confused from
the writing of the rules. He's emailed me his response, which I may post
later, with his permission.

Btw, this was mostly caused because I was mailed a "legalease" document
that I was supposed to follow and enforce. I get very anal in situations
like that. *smile*

Since everyone is in agreement, I'm very releaved that I don't have to
worry about mailing lists being an electronic publication.
