"I'm in sales", so what duh! If he had anything of interest to contribute to our discussions, then I would perhaps have looked at it differently. After all this ng is a meeting place about tips and tricks for saab enthusiasts. Posting here require personal involvement and sometimes time-consuming research, not just blanket crossposting spamming junk. Speaking of junk, just today I have received five different versions of "Hi! How are you. I send you this file in order to have your advice See you later. Thanks" in my mailbox. The attached file is of course a well known macro virus, hence it goes straight in the bin. But this is not the only thing; it is also bulky and hence eats into filespace and bandwidth. Sooner or later some method has to be found to clean up the internet or it will grind to a halt. Johannes
