<<Dear Histonetters,
   Since reading Michelle's reply about Bone IHC, it's obvious that many 
replies are not going out to the Histonet.  I was wondering why?  I'm not 
here just to read questions.  I would appreciate it if ya'll would send your 
answers to everyone.
Thanks, Sarah>>

I have now made it a habit to reply privately because I am a vendor. We have 
been  discouraged, in the past, to reply to the entire community.  Even 
though we offer products and services that are relevant to the discussion at 
hand, it has been mis understood as a sales pitch if we offer our products, 
services, or experiences,  via the histonet.  I feel that is a major flaw in 
the histonet philosophy.   We are in contact with hundreds of customers each 
year.  We share information with them.  We hear their needs and concerns.  We 
develop products to help histologists and Pathologists based on their needs 
and concerns.  We have been involved in the histology community and have 
experience in the histology lab dating back to 1954.  We support the 
histology community at various state and National Symposiums.  We hand gladly 
hand out untold numbers are freebies.  In spite of all this, we have been 
made to feel as though we are intruding on the histonet if we reply to the 
entire community with our expertise.   Until we are made to feel welcome in 
the discussion at hand,  we will continue to stay in the backround.
