[GRRN] large email attachments on greenyes

I'd like to gently suggest that those posting to greenyes NOT attach giant
WORD5 or other word processing documents to the list, such as the recent
one that on my system took 193K. Rather that taking up a lot of bandwidth
(and for some of us, a considerable time downloading), a better solution
might be to describe the document briefly, post it to the web, and
provide readers with a URL where it can be found. If unsure how to do
this, it's well worth a few minutes learning how -- or, find a friend who
can do it for you.

This way, those interested in receiving the information that way can still
access it, and those who aren't interested don't have to take the time to
download it.

I'd welcome other thoughts on this topic.
