I see your point.  My original post just contained a 4 color .png attached
picture.  I'm very careful about the size & content of what I attach when I
send it through this news group.  The total size of the picture + the text
in the original message was 8kb, probably the same size or smaller than if I
described the illustration in words.

The size of this message alone is 6kb, the typical size of messages within
this group.
