Re: Struck a Nerve (by way of Histonet)

Thank you Vinnie!

 I have decided not to comment further, but as you rightly stated there is
more than one side to every story and I'm glad to see that you recognize
this. I think HistoNet should be an honest  forum, not a place to vent
anger or frustration.

 I hope this doesn't turn into another one of those endless discussions...

 Have a great weekend.

I am not writing to disagree with Mark's comments about one's right to
 express personal experiences or opinions.
 However, it is important for all of us to realize that someone with
 malicious intent could cause a great deal of ill will toward a
 particular vendor with the simple click of the "send" button. Histonet
 has a large audience and with that comes the power to influence a great
 many others some of whom will take the information they read here as
 fact and gospel. Think of the harm that could be done by someone with
 less than honorable motives.

 Along with your "right" to express yourself comes the requirement that
 we all be forthright and honorable with the information shared here and
 if necessary prepared to back up our statements with the facts. I am
 reminded of the cliche that there are at least "three sides to a story"

 Having said this, I agree that no vendor choosing to use strong arm
 tactics to silence this list should be tolerated. I for one am eager to
 learn of others' experiences with the array of instrumentation available
 to us, pro or con. I would hope that vendors would see this as an
 opportunity to learn how their equipment or service might be improved.

 The opinions expressed above are solely my own and are not intended to
 represent the views of anyone else, especially my employer.
