I couldn't have put it better myself and would probably have been rude doing
so. Akk technical contributions are useful to us and help to keep everyone
abreast of new developments. It is worth remembering that if we don't welcome
the manufacturers' comments they might not welcome ours and then their products
might not take on board what we can contribute. So please don't knock them.

Thanks for your 2 cents' worth, Gayle.

1.  If I reply to someone privately, I do it because I CHOOSE to be PRIVATE.
    and I am offended if the person I communicated privately with, who puts it
    out for all to read onHistonet or elsewhere.  Histonet is a source
    of email addresses available for just this privacy issue.  

2.  I enjoy the question and answer format of H'net.  Vendors who
    participate in this format are invaluable.  If you are personally offended
    by vendor participation, take it to them PRIVATELY!  better yet, see #3.   

3.  Delete button is alive and well on my computer. 
    If a sent message is perceived as THE blatant advertisement INSTEAD
    OF AN ANSWER, ZAP!  Curious, it never gets past the subject line here!  

4.  Bashing a vendor or another's reply and/or problems is RUDE!!!
    worthy of the big ZAPOLA POOF GONE!  Bite thy tongue before a bash! 

Vendors, I want that info, stand up and answer those questions, out in the
open and on H'net. Your product MAY be the one to solve a problem, improve my
technical skills and certainly TEACHES me something.

Remember Bambi's Thumper saying "if you can't say somethin' nice, then 
don't say nothin' at all!", probably messed up that quote!
