Well for what its worth, I don't mind seeing postings like this.  

In these sorts of cases (eg not anonymous mass mailings and probably
just an honest mistake) wouldn't it be a bit more productive and

with [FOR SALE]? Its not like the linux community is at risk of losing
its reputation for being hostile.
