Gurth has a good point, though I must elaborate. Here is a list
of GURANTEED effects if you post binaries to the list:

(1) We'll be swamped with questions from newbies who have never
heard of UUENCODE before.
(2) The few people who receive this list in Digest form will all
hate you, now and forever.
(3) The HEARN admins may send a message to our Fearless Leader,
complaining about how much space this list takes up and asking
that we never allow binaries in the archives again.
(4) Next time somebody proposes sending a binary to the list,
it'll be you that we remind them about.

These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
