I don't see anything wrong with Dave profiting from this list.  I do feel
that the list would be much less valuable if it were clutter with ads or if
your names were sold, however advertising on Dave's web site is a great
idea.  Dave has worked to hard on his "hobby", not to realize some gain.
Heck maybe he will get rich quick and will sell out and retire.  We can all
say we knew Dave when he was nothing!  :)...... sorry Dave.  Go for it!!!
BTW, how many active subscribers are there on the list-serv?
