Hello Glen,

Well, I actually agree with Roger Pence's comments regarding this (and that 
doesn't happen often).  Most of 
the vendors on this list do provide free advice (and plug their product at the 
same time).  I don't really 
mind because I don't find their plugs blatant.  They are usually in context and 
adequately marked with a 
disclaimer or other obvious note.  David Gibbs does a good job of moderating 
the list and I think he would 
tell vendors when they are out of line -- besides the list members can also 
comment when they feel it is 
getting out of hand (as you have done).

Simon Coulter.
