|Alt Art Marketplace Frequently Asked Questions:
What is permitted in Alt Art Marketplace?
The purpose of this unmoderated group is to provide a forum where nobody with art-related merchandise; whether it is a painting, sculpture, the documentation of a conceptual piece, or the supplies and equipment used for art production; needs to fear the wrath and flames of anti-commercial zealots. ( This does not apply to "spammers" who flood the usenet with get-rich-quick schemes, miracle diets, credit-repair services, sex-talk numbers, chain letters, and ads for miscellaneous non-art-related junk - these folks are not welcome, and may be considered lawful flame-bait.)
While all plain-text messages on the subjects permitted above are welcome, please do not post pictures, binarys, or html attachments to your messages. These use a lot more bandwidth than text, and crowd out legitimate messages before they have a chance to be read. If you want to direct readers to a site where a picture is posted (your own or one the many sites where one can put pictures up for free) that is permitted- even encouraged.
