Keeping in mind the context in which the carter was written, and that
advertising is not specifically permitted by the charter, advertising is
technically off-topic for rec.video.satellite.dbs. As such any posts
consisting of entirely advertisements are quite unwelcome, as are those
posts which appear to answer a posted question, but are really a thinly
veiled advertisement. It is considered permissible to include a small
plug in one's .sig, as long as the normal rule of keeping .sigs under four
lines is adhered to.
