Well, here's my 2 cents worth,

If decisions on equipment purchases etc are not your decision then
you should not be getting steamed up about vendors contacting you,
you should just politely tell them that if necessary they should
contact your supervisor.
I feel that people using the histonet as a market survey tool is just
peachy - at least they know what competition is out there and whether
their sales  tactic and product is suitably market oriented. I have
often suggested to vendors other possible targets for
their product - people that i know are looking for a particular item
or have an interest in a particualr field - I do not consider this
inappropriate - I hope that other s will do the same for me.

Life is too short to get agitated on such issues
