Commercial advertising is allowed. The subject line must start "ADVERT ", and the post should be no more than 6 lines in length. Commercial establishments may post an invitation to either visit their web site or request details such advertisements should not be posted more than once every calendar month.

Individuals may post recommendations of markets, stores, magazines, etc in reply to an existing post, but this recommendation should be strictly on-topic.

PGP signatures are permitted, as are commercial references in signatures. However, signatures must not exceed 4 lines. All other binaries are forbidden.

It would be preferred that replies to posts are made through the newsgroup, though this is not compulsory.
