In defense of our on-line vendors:
It was my understanding that the individual was called by a person who
wanted to entice them to change jobs........and not one of our vendors to
sell products.     If this was a "Head Hunter", as we call them in the
states, then there would be no products to refuse to buy.

If we give our name and location, we are subject to those company
representatives who try to lure people from one job to another.   Of course,
this could also be beneficial, if we are interested.

	  So you should.

	  This could herald the Beginning of the End of our
	  wonderfully managed listserver. Let us pray that
	  this abomination will not spread. Let us also
	  make it clear to these objectionable advertisers
	  that we will never buy from them again if they
	  do not publicly repent, with much groveling, and
	  firmly resolve to avoid the occasions of sin.

	  Whatever you do, DON'T reply directly to any email
	  spam, and NEVER follow the advice to send a message
	  with "remove" in the Subject line"  This will confirm
	  that your address is still active, and the spamming
	  will increase. Send spam reports to the postmaster
	  of your own email server, who should know what to do.

	  If someone telephones you because of an email, report
	  him/her to everyone you can think of, and tell all
	  your friends never to buy anything from that
	  company again. Tell the wretched telemarketing kid
	  to tell his miserable boss that there are no takers.

	  If HistoNet gets to be seen as a bunch of 1000 or so
	  possible buyers, we'll all get targetted (if that's
	  a real word; "shot at" is more correct), and most of
	  us will unsubscribe. This will be sad, and the only
	  people receiving the junk email and phone calls will
	  be those who unscribe, unsusribe, ususcribe.
