Yes, of course they are. Did you think I implied that they didn't?

No, of course not. In no way did I imply that it was.

No sneering coming from me, Stefan. Perhaps you misread my mail? I  
have no problem with people posting *anything* to this list. I just  
have an affinity with the idea that a recruitment agency might  
consider posting to [_] in a similar way to, say, placing an advert.  
Heck, if a company that isn't an agency decided that a donation to the  
list would be appropriate, that would be great too. Some form of  
income stream could hardly hurt the list, could it? Particularly if it  
were used to buy beer.
