Yeah, one would think so, but the cdo hierarchy has suffered a lot of abuse, so pretty much anything like this, even announcing a free tool, is considered a commercial message. Personally I would like to consider an announce such as yours OK, but I'm in the minority, and I can certainly understand the majority view. Consider that people have attempted to spread malware in this manner, and some tools are just bogus.

But I for one am glad to see tools like yours released.
