As a vendor, we give out quite a lot of marketing information and
"toys", and we would prefer that these go to real AS/400 users.  You can
be assured, that anyone who has paid the price for the Common
conference, definitely has an AS/400 interest.  Therefore, it would be
nice if they had to be members of Common, and not just people walking
off the street.  

Just my two cents, from a different perspective.
