my apologies, thought it would be relevant, other user groups allow it.
AUUG members have received a 15% discount with us for some time now.

Even if this is relevant to our membership, this is spam, and under
proposed legislation it would be subject to prosecution. Please don't
do this again. If you have legitimate offers which you think would
interest our membership, please contact Liz Carroll
<busmgr at auug.org.au> and we will arrange to let those members know who
might be interested. If you're prepared to give AUUG members a
discount, you can be sure you'll get a significantly better uptake.
Talk subscribers: in the past, we used to send messages of this nature
to auug-announce. That's arguably worse than sending it to talk,
since everybody gets it then. We've had a few complaints, and we're
thinking of creating a separate list for this kind of announcement.
Does anybody have views on this?
