Standard practice on any mailing list.

There's no need to post out an attachment of say 2Mb that'll go out to 
everyone on the list, particulary when some might be data volume limited.

Really if you sat down and thought about it, there's no need to send 
posts anywhere near the size limit of the mailing list in the first 
place. Email lists are text based transfers, not file based transfers. :)

As you can guess, I fully back up what Darryl is doing with this list. 
If anyone does not like it, then they are free to set up their own list. ;)
