You've come to the right place. Now, you just have to make sure you're posting to the right group... cmi.* cmi.* is the appropriate place to post classifieds of interest to the entire community.

Other Issues o Don't try to crosspost between the two hierarchies. o Never post the same advertisement more than once in the same week. o Only post to the most appropriate newsgroups, not to all of them. o If you're going to crosspost, make sure you set followups appropriately. o Try to keep discussion within the classifieds group to a minimum. o Sellers: don't try to rip anybody off. Buyers: Let The Buyer Beware. o If these newsgroups don't appear in your list of newsgroups, you'll have to add them manually.
