Just wanted to point out that in my last statement on venders, I said that I
agreed with Lynn on allowing them to post once or twice a month. I agree that
posting all the time would cause problems, but I do think it might work if we
had a scheduled time for such postings. I like your suggestion of having them
register to ensure their legitimacy. I think the venders we have heard from on
Histonet have all been very professional, but can see how "opening it up" could
be dangerous. Requiring them to somehow register is a great suggestion!!
