In light of the last "for sale" email, you might want to add something 
about excessive capitalization (or complete lack thereof) in the body 
of the email.  I don't want to restrict people from using an ASR-33 to 
post to the list, but I don't think most of the annoyingly/unreadably 
capitalized emails are due to uppercase-only terminals.
