That's a tricky one. It's on-topic and reasonable honest (no obfuscated
text, and although they don't explicitly state there is a fee it should be
obvious that most courses that aren't labelled as free do cost money). It
is advertising, but advertising isn't necessarily evil. And it's being sent
to a public list, rather than spammed out to millions of individual email
I think it's in a grey area, but so long as the sender doesn't abuse the
privilege by flooding the group with advertising, it falls just slightly on
the "acceptable" side of the line. But I wouldn't be surprised if some
people disagree. I think it would be more acceptable to me if the sender
labelled the subject line as "Advertising".
