    I'm sorry, but the reasons  are not "obvious" by any means.
    And you wrote:
    "we are GUESTS (it is  free to Navigation-l) on the webkahuna.com server.
    Attachments add to the  load on the server"
    This is a trivial cost. I have "owned" mailing lists  twice in the past
    twelve years. In the early 90s, bandwidth was expensive, and  "text only" was the
    law on listservs. Listservs were also expensive. By 1999 or  so, this had
    changed completely. Even the smallest web site burns much more  bandwidth than a
    very busy mailing list. A list as small as Navigation-L can be  operated for
    free on hundreds of services and bandwidth limits for them, if they  exist at
    all, have nothing to do with attachments (per se).
    And you  concluded:
    "as a courtesy NO ATTACHMENTS please."
    Hmm. OK. So why  didn't you complain about attachments last year? Or did I
    just miss  that??
