True, but as I understand it, it's the "Knowne World" Academy of
Rapier; i.e., a focal point for the entirety of rapierists in the
Society.  Just because it's in  Atlantia doesn't mean that people
outside this Kingdom might not be interested.  Heck, Pennsic isn't in
the West, but I'm sure a lot of Westerners are interested in info on
that... ;-)

The main reason where I could possibly see someone considering these
messages as SPAM is if they are (inadvertantly) being posted to a
Kingdom list that doesn't have rapier.  In that case, the messages
would indeed be considered just so much wasted bandwidth.
