I agree this person was discourteous. He/she has probably been lurking and
gathering our e-mail addresses. I don't think they can be gathered of the
Getty site, unless they were grabbed from our backup listserve at onelist.
The e-mail was large and tied up my phone line for 5 - 10 minutes. (I'm in
West Texas with old phone lines no DSL yet) It came through as HTML e-mail
for me. I think that it depends on your e-mail program how it was received
as HTML e-mail or a web page attachment. Either way it was SPAM and for that
reason alone I will not visit the web site. I immediately added the address
to my junk mail filter.

It would have been most courteous for the person, if he was posting
to our list, as it seems he has, to have introduced himself and explained
his intentions. How did he get our addresses anyway--without going through
joining the list?! No, we are not paranoid. Just following our instincts.
