Even if this were true, we don't all have unlimited time. Also, the
net posesses its own 'netiquette'. For items such as this which
constitute long posts, it's much more polite to post a brief message
asking those who are interested in seeing a long item (story, binary
file, etc.) to request it via private e-mail. This should keep
everybody happy.
