Subject: Existing customers may send it their silvias for an upgrade
I am making available to all of my customers who desire it -- an
upgrade to the new "wet" thermocouple. Placed directly into the
center of the boiler WATER, it provides instant response to temp
changes.

after all we are making coffee with the water, not the brass!

You may send me JUST your boiler or your entire machine. The cost is
$65.00 plus return shipping.
This is NOT a kit.

Stan? yours is gratis! :-)

I am fairly new to alt.coffee and by the way find it an excellent
group. But I digress. I was surprised to see ads on the group when I
started, and would prefer not to. I am quite capable of finding
suppliers of espresso supplies on the web without having it posted on
this site. Every now and then we are all reminded of Netiquette with a
message posted to the board. To my mind ads violate these guidelines,
at least in spirit if not categorically.

You are correct in my view, but the truth is that usenet is the Wild West -
there is no sheriff in town to police offenders. Fortunately, the most
common offenders in this group are recidivists - you can keep their posts
out of your view just by "killfiling" their posting identities (assuming you
are reading usenet from a usenet reader rather than Google groups - and you
should be). For example, Outlook Express has a "Block Sender" menu item. Or
just simply ignoring offensive commercial posts.

To my mind, this is the best solution but others take a different view and
expend considerable energy in flame wars which only further dilute the
content of the group. I understand their desire to drive the "bad guys"
permanently out of town and not just send them to the neighbors house
because you have burglar bars on YOUR windows, but I fear that the measures
they have chosen are more like a pop gun that the offenders only laugh at -
one definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and
expecting a different result. When there is no effective sheriff in town,
sometimes the best you can do is hunker down in your fortress.
