Hmmm. You did ask for permission to use the material didn't you?

Well, if you want to go thorough the trouble to publish something anyone
has access either through or it's clearly your problem... For now anyway.

Anything related to the rp-ml is FREE ! If someone is going to get paid
for this, I think I'm the first one on the line (even I do not get paid
for the administration).

Therefore I find it Very Disturbing that you are selling out the
rp-ml jokes. I do not think that you or any other company or individual
has the right to sell out any messages sent to rp-ml. ANd if such a right
excists, I think I - as the owner and administrator of rp-ml - have it.

> In the words of Hannu Kaikonen, Glorious RPML Listowner, "Share and Enjoy"
Thank you for your kind words. I have to confess: the words 'Share and
Enjoy' are used in a book of Douglas Adams, The Hitchhikers guide to
the galaxy. But I do not think he has patented the frase.

And yet another comment, at your web page you state that rp-ml site is
at Helsinki University. Unfortunately that is not quite true. There is a
thing called Helsinki University, and we have very little in common, the
real place for rp-ml is Helsinki University of Technology (a bit
confucing? -yep, but nothing we can do about it).

Have a nice one!

Yours truly
