:) ROTFLMAO - again, and again, and again, .. oh, wait..
class again:
    def __init__(self, num, arg):
        tmp=arg[:]
        tmp=tmp+", and "
        self.val=tmp*(num-1)
        self.val=self.val+arg
    def __str(self):
        return self.val

print again(900, "again")

I wouldn't be _THAT_ hard on them. True, they didn't mention that they were
actually the company in question, and for that they certainly deserve a
smack upside the head. But they certainly posted a relevant pointer to
something that may help a lot of people associated with this newsgroup. They
may not be perfect, but they are certainly on my "good usenet advertisers"
list for not randomly spamming, for spelling everything properly, for being
short and direct, and for being reasonably on-topic.

Better this than the recent porn postings!!
