Did the Verizon email breakdown cause me to loose emails on this topic? 
I don't recall seeing a thread on this subject.  Heretofore, I recall
the rule was that commercial entities couldn't advertize.  Individuals
could make their fellow listers aware of relevant items for sale that
might be wanted.  Do I now understand I have to subtract from my limited
remaining life the time required to scan the marketplace everyday to
determine if some interesting s-car goodie has appeared?  Do organizers
of group buys have to zip their virtual lips?
