    I am posting some brief and very useful information concerning a new
    product in the Photography Industry. The product by the name of
    ArtShield is a clear coating designed to protect and enhance the
    longevity of fine art, graphics and photographs (both chemical and
    digital). Artshield is totally non-staining and will not affect the
    colors or the material of the object being coated. It renders a
    photograph non-yellowing. This product is of long term benefits for
    both the professional and the hobbyist. For more details please visit
    the Artshield website at Please
    accept my thanks for your time and interest

    Most coatings will slowly destroy the photograph or print underneath. You
    will have to provide a lot of proof that yours is different before anyone
    (other than the suckers we believe the spam on newsgroups) will be
    interested. I suggest you spray the stuff up your...

    What you are DOING is commonly referred to as SPAMMING!

    If your product did what you claimed, you wouldn't need to SPAM newsgroups
    for free advertising, because every library, university, archive and museum
    would be on your waiting list to buy your product!

    Your article is just the modern day equivalent of those old time "medicine
    shows." That stuff didn't work, either, and by the time the suckers found
    out, the huckster had already gotten out of town!

    description of my product with a URL for more information.

    Bollox isn't it, loser.
    Unsolicited advertising in non-marketplace newsgroups is spamming.

    Wrong - this is not a marketplace group, therefore it is viewed as
    Get lost, loser.

  9. You posted a commercial post in a newsgroup whose charter forbids commercial
    posts. That's "Spam" by most peoples definition.

    So that makes you either incredibly stupid or extremely arrogant . . . or .
    .. . . more likely a stupid arrogant plonker.

    now, why don't you take your Fartshield, shove it where the sun don't shine
    then punch a hole in the spraycan and maybe you'll blow yourself to
    somewhere most of the decent people on this newsgroup (and JermBoy too) wish
    you would piss off to

    Like Tony I am a bit skeptical of protective coatings.

    Although they can serve a purpose such as UV blocking (if capable) The
    longevity of prints, slides, and negatives in general depends on how
    well they are processed and in particular, washed.

    Of course with prints it depends on the paper as well.

    Only after proper processing, using the proper materials can a coating
    be expected to add protection. In the case of B & W prints on
    archival quality paper proper fixing and then eliminating all traces
    of the fixer is essential. If this is not done a coating will
    accelerate the deterioration unless that coating itself is capable of
    rendering any remaining fixer inert.

    For a coating (any coating) to be proven safe in this realm will take
    many years of in-the-field use.

    Although I like to hear about new products available (in the proper
    news group and not my e-mail) this is probably not the best group in
    which to bring it up. The photography groups have a number of users
    who are rabidly anti-spam and see any reference by someone to their
    own product as spam even when done in an informative way.
