Actually, you are quite correct. Though I was *looking* for it last
night, it completely missed my eye. Maybe it should be in bold caps
like the "NOT FOR SAMBA QUESTIONS" immediately above it? (which I did see)

How about an enumerated list with "TERMS OF USE" in bold at the top, and
also email it to new subscribers when they confirm their email address?

I don't know what it said when you looked, but 
http://lists.samba.org/mailman/listinfo/linux now says (among other things):

"Occasional advertisements of items for sale are permitted for active list
members. If you do not participate on the list, you are not allowed to
post advertisements."

Which I think is pretty clear ...

Lets not even think about the Spam Act ... or the fact that I (as "one of
the two main contact people for CLUG") received two copies of this mail
(including the Word Document attachment) less than 1 minute before it was
posted to the list.
