Washroom wall fly or moth?

An expert birder and butterfly photographer suggested to me that it can't be a moth since it only has one pair of wings!
This insect is frequently seen on washroom walls of both outdoor privy's and indoor washrooms!
I just assumed it was a fly until I took these photos and heavily cropped one!
I have posted this on my Flickr.com site: James Roderick McGillawee
Will appreciate your answer at your convenience, Thanx!!!

Two Questions

I have two questions about the AAE site:

1). What is meant by the "handling rate" and how is it determined?

2). When I respond to a question posed to me, I am having difficulty in putting an image (JPG) into my response. Is this possible and if so, how exactly do I do this?
