Ok, here is my proposal that you will hopefully comment on. 1. Vendors will not post advertisements. Announcements of version upgrades or new products limited to a few (<10?) lines are appropriate. These should contain an e-mail address where interested parties can respond. 2. Vendors should reply only to individuals in reference to generic requests for information about software. 3. Users should carry on tech support type dialogs with vendors by private e-mail. 4. Vendors may participate in general discussions of the types of activities in which their software is involved. Areas might include modeling for a developer of FEM solutions or office accounting practices by a developer of accounting software. 5. Vendors may reply publicly to any messages containing falsehoods concerning their product. Such replies should quote the falsehood verbatim and respond narrowly to the falsehood. 6. In all cases, vendors should refrain from promoting their products publicly (other than in the ways stated above) and refrain from criticizing the products of their competitors. The idea of a separate posting area is also good though I suspect most will refer interested parties to their web sites, if they have one. Mark E. Deardorff, SE Deardorff & Deardorff, Inc.
