As posted repeatedly: IT IS NOT SPAM UNLESS THERE IS A CHARTER
EXPRESSLY FORBIDDING AN ON-TOPIC POST OF INTEREST TO USERS (and yes, I
know I'm screaming in RG's face). Show me the charter. Write a charter
if you can't and get it approved. Until then, shut up.
Nonsense. It's spam when it's spam. Whether it's on-topic or allowed
within a group is a function of the charter, but teh definition of
spam does not depend upon a charter. I think you are confusing 'spam'
with 'off-topic' postings.

I think we have lost view of what this was originally all about. The
post was not _just_ a self-promoting message of a commercial nature,
it was (IMO , purposely) worded in a deceptive way in order to gain
attention. While debating the definition of "UCE" or "SPAM" can be
valuable there is a bigger issue at large here. The poster has a long
history here of behavior that could be easily filed in the same
The term "Spam" is very often used to describe a commercial post in a
general way. It is considered a negative term that infers that the
person who posted it is in some way connected to or profits from the
post or link therein.
And the item isn't even a "kit," but three parts at auction 'suddenly'
appearing in order to, IMO, draw attention away from a person who has
dedicated a huge amount of effort and time to create a REAL kit that
can be installed by just about anyone who can read and use simple hand
And leave it to R-J to take this and turn it around to lure people
into a tangent to avoid the actual case at hand. I suppose the moral
issue of deceptive business practices can be easily overlooked when
there is an opportunity to attack me.
