Please, I vote no on attachments.
Those who wish to display images may already post them online. Go ahead
and do so. If you don't want to bother learning how to do so, or if it's

connections feel when people send us large attachments that take 5-10

"Ooh, that was a pretty picture"
and they have their E-mail program set to automatically forward
attachments. So we have to suffer through receiving the image again.
So, please no attachments on the list.
