To me its very easy. Advertising in a newsgroup like this, promoting your company, is way beyond what is appropriate. It is as simple as that. All these "you can buy these parts on our site www.xxx.com..." is simply off the limits. I would recommend you and your company to stay in this newsgroup if you feel good about contributing to it. If its all about making money - No thanks. Also, if you would leave it at giving advise and signing the post with your name and possibly company name, then I think few people would react negatively and your company would still find new customers. Just stay of the "buy it from us"-nonsense.....in the long run I think your company will benefit from this approach instead of the one you are using now. I also want to say I'm glad to see you bring this up. Hopefully you will also respect the opinions of the group. Thanks, Mathias 9000 Aero -91 (<= your company name here...!.)
