    Can the maximum number of fonts be increased from 500? If so; how?

    I don't where you got the idea that there is a 500-font limit, but
    that is not correct.

    You can stop posting that same attachment now. This is at least the
    third time we've seen it. In fact, please stop posting attachments
    here, period.

    Are you the moderator? Did you intercept my replies and then refuse to
    post them due to the attachment? If yes to these questions then the
    correct response should have been to inform me upon receipt of the 1st
    reply that attachments should not be included in posts. I never saw any
    of my replies and thought that, for some reason, my reply was not being
    fully received thus the 3 replies. Polite is always better than rude.

    Not sure where or how you are posting, but I'm viewing your message via
    Usenet which is unmoderated.

    However I never saw your original messages as this is a non-binary group and
    as such many server don't propagate messages that contain attachments.

    The original post had no attachments. Only the 3 replies in question.
    I am using the server news.west.earthlink.net. My software is Mozilla
    Thunderbird v3.1.4. I saw my original post and my previous reply. I
    did not see my 3 replies containing the attachment which makes me
    believe they were being moderated.

    My apologies. As Seth said, this is an unmoderated Usenet newsgroup.
    In effect, you moderated yourself (in some people's eyes, including
    your own) by posting a binary attachment to a non-binary newsgroup. My
    provider, Easynews, allowed the posts through, but your provider,
    Giganews, apparently did not.

    Not moderated, but dropped.

    Ok, not the "original" message, but any replies with attachments I have not
    seen as my server ignores (not moderates, there are no moderators on Usenet)
    and drops without passing on.

    There is a difference between being moderated and having a message
    dropped/ignored because it violated the no-attachment setting of a text only
    message group.

    Semantics. In order to be dropped it had to be moderated. Either by a
    human being or robo software.

    No, not semantics. To be "moderated" implies that there is a group
    moderator. There is no such being, human or electronic. Attachments are
    dropped by any news server that is set up to do so, not by one central
    newsgod.

    Again, semantics. You infer that there is a group moderator, but the
    definition of the verb moderate is "to reduce the excessiveness of; make
    less violent, severe, intense, or rigorous". In this case, the news
    server appears to be the moderator.

  14. In the local context (newsgroups), "moderato" is a technical term.

    In a classical mechanics class, would you insist that "gravity" is
    defined as "seriousness"?

  15. Typo. I meant "moderator", of course.

    That is not what "moderator" means in newsgroup/discussion forum
    jargon. You are misusing the term.

    So, you're saying that: if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and
    quacks like a duck, according to Usenet it's probably a pigeon. Where
    can I find the official dictionary of "newsgroup/discussion forum jargon"?

    You're not going to find anyone who understands how internet discussion
    groups work that will agrees with you, so you can stop trying to
    shoehorn inappropriate definitions into the term.

    Your delete key is not a moderator.
