No. Binaries are NOT welcome in alt.tv.charmed, please post them to web
pages, or into newsgroups that welcome binaries. However once you have
posted your Charmed related binary elsewhere, please feel free to make a
brief note about what you have done in alt.tv.charmed.
Keep in mind two things, first many of the people reading this newsgroup
do so via dial-up internet in nations where all calls (even "local" calls)
are charged on an x amount of money per minute basis, and thus don't
appreciate unexpected masses of non-text messages. Second, many system
administrators because of storage issues will delete any binary messages
they find outside a *.binaries.* newsgroup.
