OK, this is really damning. Thanks Steve.

As a dues-paying ARSC member, I don't think non-members should be allowed to post on this list in 
the first place. And they (non-ARSC members) REALLY shouldn't be allowed to solicit business or seek 
enrichment from listmembers. I would make that a bootable offense if I controlled the list. Jay, 
create your own e-mail list of eligable buyers and advertise to them. Or, open your advertised price 
to all who receive your e-mails.
