In this specific instance, Max did not what his content mirrored.  All of 
the content on ArachNIDS is copyrighted to Max's company.  Republishing it
without permission IS in violation of copyright law. 

I had asked before he went to jail.  Marty asked his wife after he was in 
jail.  I asked his wife again after he was in jail.  Every time, we were 
told "Thanks for asking, but no."

Do people not actually read the email that is sent to this list?  We have
