Re: [SI-LIST] : use of this List

I find it annoying to get targetted for marketting, just for posting
something to an email list. I particularly dislike email marketting,
even more when it isn't in response to a request I made. I've had sales
engineers (FAEs, etc.) send me large (>1 MByte) powerpoint presentations
about a product that I already have, and even mentioned in the email I
sent to the list.

At the very least, READ the message before sending the marketting info.

Some FAEs seem to forget that a sales brochure is not a solution.
