This is not to create any bad feelings, rather it is a question to the list
maintainers: Are there no written or un-written rules as to the allowed
sizes of messages posted to this list? I mean some of us are on expensive
pay-by-the-minute dial-ups and if it's okay to post messages as large as the
one I'm replying to or even larger, subscribing to lynx-dev could soon turn
into a costly affair.

My sense of netiquette would tell me to put for instance a large trace on a
server and post the link - or describe the question as accurately as I can
and invite people to get a private mail from me, should they express
interest in helping out.

Is this not the recommended method on this list? I'm genuinely interested
because I've seen other lists where people also post very large mails and
seemingly no one objects which may be because everyone but me has
"always-on"/flatrate connections and I'm just being old-fashioned.
