You don't need anybody's permission to say things here. Don't feel inhibited
from joining the discussion.
People do get a bit uptight about people posting images though.
It is particularly a problem here. What you won't know is that
Sci.bio.entomology.lepidoptera (SBEL) is one of a tiny handful out of the countless
thousands of newsgroups that is linked to an email list. The list is called
Leps-l. There are many people on Leps-l who do not use newsgroups at all.
They are often in rather distant parts of the world where internet access
does not work as well. Large files can cause problems for people on the
end of bad phone lines in less technologically advanced countries.
I didn't get to see your photo. Perhaps it is still on the way to me.
I have my machine set to pick up both SBEL and Leps-l automatically.
I was having trouble getting my email down so I deleted the leps-l
posting from the server expecting it to come through on the newsgroups.
I think however my ISP is filtering out large postings.
I notice that you have your own web site. Perhaps you could put it on there
for us all to see. I am sure people would be interested. I know that
the photographs on my sites are very popular.
