I'm sorry to hear that you or  other vendors may feel unwanted by this list. 
I appreciate the information I get from all vendors (I never met any I could 
not learn something from). I can't imagine people on this list would mind 
hearing what you offer, as long as other vendors or products are not put 
down in the process. I hope you'll reconsider.

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.  
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 
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.
