Do the police read every piece of advertisement that gets into your mailbox?
Or mailboxes in Italy don't get flooded with advertisement? (if that's the

Isn't an association as Assoli allowed to distribute a newsletter among its
associates? And there might be some PC magazines interested in including a
"free" supplement with their monthly issue.
