I'm confused. Why exactly was scooperstein's post removed? The "spam" didn't even include the contact information. (scooperstein explicitly mentioned s/he removed it.) Who was advertising? Where do we sign up? Who do we call or e-mail?What? There was no contact information? That doesn't sound like an advertisement or spam to me. Advertisements usually have contact information or at least the name of a company. Otherwise, what's the point? I think some people here are confused about the difference between a true piece of spam and a quote of "what I received in the mail".What about the people on the credit card board who say, "I got such-and-so a rate offer from such-and-so CCC." There we have an actual product with contact info (the name of the company.) Those kinds of posts are considered legitimate (and rightly so), but they are closer to being spam than scooperstein's post.As for the "you shouldn't post e-mail to the message boards," that's generally meant to apply to private conversations between two individuals. If you get spam or junk mail, it's not very private, so I'd say it's fair game to post it anywhere you want (including the trash can, if appropriate.)There seems to be some poor reading/interpretation going on this site lately or some really thin skin.Just my two cents,DanaFoolishEngineer
