So you /knew/ this was a plain text group and yet you /still/ couldn't be
arsed to upload a 500k image to some webspace somewhere and point people to
it? There are plenty of free sites that will host it and I'm sure your ISP
gives you some free webspace.

You are May's Moron of the Month Award winner for being so damned fecking
lazy! This group is plain text only - many ISPs will strip binary posts from
places they don't belong.

I suggest you learn how to use a graphics application to resize a photo too.

Idiot!

Actually, Rick, there is. Most ISPs regard these groups as plain text and
will strip the binary or delete the post. Those on dial-up will also object
to having to download a 500k image.

I loaded that image into PSP and resized it - it was only 50k and perfectly
clear.

It's in his own best interests. To all intents and purposes, all groups that
do NOT specifically state they are binary, should be regarded as plain text.
