Topic: a sneaking suspicion... (25 lines)
1) From: Tom & Maria - Sweet Maria's Coffee
I must admit too that anytime I see a post with ..."hey, I just found 
this great etc etc etc" ...  and it conveniently has the URL right 
there, that something fishy is going on. Haven't kept up with 
alt.coffee lately but if you have spent any time there, you learn to 
smell that smell from a long ways off. Not sure what is going on 
here, seems innocent enough. But we use this list to discuss roast 
topics and the pros and cons of equipment, not to send out plugs with 
URLs to the group. If you like something, and want to discuss it, 
keep the URLs out of it and if you post more frequently on a variety 
of subjects then your credibility will rise when you want to send a 
post like that. It's all part of the online ethic.
