So you chose to distribute your document via PDF and it is what 15MB in 
size? You email this to those who are interested...do you do one single 
mailing with all the addresses or do you individually email them? How 
many of these guys can take a 15MB attachment or a 20MB message? 
Probably all but I wonder how many of those who did not ask, did not do 
so because they do not have a mailbox on a system that can swallow a 
20MB message.

Let's see:

Did you miss the 'revision history' link that removes all doubt about 
who said what?

You then call it snippy...

Max: do you not have a place to host the document then? It seems
that if you've gone to that much trouble to write something, then
perhaps you just need a spot somewhere to host the document?

You then complain about

"Currently I have a domain, yes, however my bandwidth is rather limited. 
  By cost, not by speed.  I don't feel like incurring hundreds of 
dollars in usage fees to post this on my domain."

but don't feel like posting on the Centos wiki but do yap about 'big' 
names like IEEE...
