Re: [Histonet] Vendor Perspective

From:LuAnn Anderson

Very well said Amos. I don't think David is getting what we are 
trying to say. The information, opinions, etc. voiced on histonet are 
for everyone on histonet. Answering one person privately defeats the 
whole purpose. I agree that venders should contact the person with 
the complaint and not their bosses~~I believe that reputable venders 
would do just that.
I agree also that we need to have the venders on the list. Theres the 
old saying about one bad apple.......................
