Yes. Thanks.

You all know i don't know formal English, i can read formal
Dutch a little. Don't use too expensive words, which after all appears
to be very very vague, if 80% of the chessprogrammers are not from
England nor from USA.

And i think i was very clearly that i thought it was an ad.

I still don't understand the contents of this list, except for that
it eats up my phone bill, so you won't see me too much, and
in rgcc also not. I see the same things over here like in RGCC,
just these new positions to solve in are interesting.

 a) i don't know who moderates over here. Also didn't get answer on
    although i asked for it (not in this msg). So of course there was a
    of: tell me whether this is allowed, and it appears that you may
    commercial for your program. I thought you wanted to get more out
    of this new setup?

  The only reaction i received was that i shouldn't blame people from

 b) don't know anything about when this stuff started, nor when this
    list started.
c) and just to point something out: if Chris may make an
   ad, then i may make to i guess?

If Chris may make an ad. If i may make an add, why not following
induction may any company make an ad over here?

Go think about that anonymous moderators.
