Model Train Biz Auction - Hudson Valley NY + Live Online

Note to all: I am in no way associated with this business. I am posting this as a favor to a friend whose husband died this summer, and the
contents of his model train store and online business (Flying Scotsman Hobbies) are going to be auctioned off on Saturday December 9 to settle the estate.
The auction will be held in Pleasant Valley, NY (the Hudson Valley area north of New York City), and the auction company is also conducting the auction live on their web site for online bidding.

As much as Peter was a great asset to rec.models.railroad, I got spammed directly with this message in my in box without invitation... did anyone else?
I did not ask to receive it, nor did it come from Peter... that's for sure.

Mark:
As a favor to Peter's widow, I posted this on 4 Usenet groups (this one plus three others that were in alt.models.railroad.xxx). I also found some Yahoo model train groups and posted there, and most of them required Moderators to review and approve first. If you get new postings on those Yahoo groups sent to your email address, then that could appear to be spam.
Other than that, that's all I personally did. I know nothing about trains and only met Peter a few times. However, I've known his wife for over 30 years now, so I was just trying to help her out in a difficult time.
I abhor spam as much as anyone, and would never send unsolicited email out to anyone, no matter what the reason. So it definitely was not of my doing.

Under the circumstances and all, couldn't you let your fanatical fear of receiving a single piece of what you call spam slide without comment?!

I post messages with my actual e-mail address, so I certainly don't have a "fanatical fear" of spam. Despite what you wrote.
