  comp.sys.sgi.marketplace is an unmoderated group for "for sale",
  "wanted to buy" and jobs offered/sought postings specific to Silicon
  Graphics computers. Commercial and/or continuing advertising, and
  postings about non-SGI-specific equipment, services and jobs, are not
  welcome.

  The Usenet Marketplace FAQ (at
  ftp://ftp.phoenix.net/pub/USERS/lildan/FAQ/ and
  http://www.phoenix.net/~lildan/FAQ/) discusses the misc.forsale.* and
  biz.marketplace.* newsgroups, and has plenty of good advice which
  applies equally well to comp.sys.sgi.marketplace. Here's some of the
  most important:

  - Like misc.forsale.*, comp.sys.sgi.marketplace is restricted to
    individual (one-time) transactions.

  - Use key words in your subject lines to clearly mark for sale ("FS",
    "FORSALE" or "FORSALE"), wanted ("WTB" or "WANTED") and jobs
    offered ("JOB") postings.

  - Limit your post's distribution to areas in which it will be of
    interest by putting a distribution keyword (e.g. "usa" for the
    United States) in your Distribution: header.

  - Cancel your post when it has accomplished its purpose to save
    yourself many wasted replies.

  - You're welcome to crosspost to both comp.sys.sgi.marketplace and the
    appropriate misc.forsale.* or misc.jobs.* group. However, be sure
    that you crosspost (specify the groups to which you're posting on
    the Newsgroups: line of a single post) rather than posting
    separately to each group.

  - Do NOT post or crosspost marketplace posts to comp.sys.sgi.hardware!

  There is not yet an info-iris-marketplace mailing list.
