Howdy, your list owner here,
I just deleted an advertisement from the digest version of this list.
It was sent from a hotmail.com address. I plan to report the abuse of
this list to hotmail, but I suspect they are unlikely to do anything
about this. I encourage our hotmail.com readers to complain to
abuse@xxxxxxxxxxx about 'realdread@xxxxxxxxxxx' and his spamming of
this mailing list.
In the future I may moderate all postings coming from free email
services such as hotmail.com because they are so often used to do
email abuse, but if abuse of this list becomes common from such
addresses, I may be forced to disallow subscribing to this list from
sites such as juno.com and hotmail.com.
Just a reminder about the advertisment policy of this list: all new

2. No Commercial/Advocacy Postings (unless pre-approved)
Commercial or advocacy postings may not be made to FATFREE even
if the posting itself is purely informational. A commercial
posting is one made by a person or on behalf of a person or
organization selling a product or service containing
information about that product or service. An advocacy
posting is one aimed at collecting mass organized support for
a political, economic, or social cause. Explicitly prohibited
postings are posts of the type: "X is a great new product with
all these benefits, email me for more info." Announcements of
seminars where products (vitamins, etc) are sold are also
prohibited. This prohibition does not apply to unaffiliated
end-consumers making unsolicited recommendations on products
and services (note, the key here is *unaffiliated* and
From time to time I *pre-approve* limited, on-topic commercial
postings. Pre-approval is required (email me at
fatfree-REQUEST@xxxxxxxxxxx). Usually the only postings approved
are book/cookbook/food product postings with specific
relevance to very low fat vegetarian diets, made by long-term
members of the FATFREE list. It helps if readers of the list
are offered a genuine discount on the product or service that
is not available to the general community.
I will remove postings in violation of this policy from the
I take such violations very seriously.
Thanks for your time,
