Guess what? Notice that the subject line of your response
doesn't start with 'SETI' either. The mailing list mails
never do, if the list server finds 'SETI' at a later point
in the subject line.

If you had taken five minutes of your busy day to go to
that website to find out what it's all about, you'd have
seen that there is _no_ personal gain whatsoever for me.
I don't think that's spam, I wrote that mail to help the
SETI League, an organization that a lot of people on the
mailing list have an interest in helping.

EyeGive will make as much money through this as the SETI
League will, but that I can live with. And I don't believe
I made a secret of that fact in my original post.
