From:marsha r price <> (by way of histonet)

Amen to that. I have been threatened by two different vendors in the past
for stating an opinion or offering my recipes that may have been similar
to theirs. I hardly ever respond to the histonet as a result. I
appreciate the vendors, but they need to realize that the histonet
belongs to the subscribers and we use it to help one another for the sake
of science and medicine. If they are offended (Vendors), they have the
right to unsubscribe.
