|
| Doesn't seem much different than crossposting, sets up loophole like
| opt-out in email (spammers can comply with can-spam act while putting
| in nasty code in remove or contact link).
|
| Of course, legitimizing the "multiple alternatives" has it's own
| risks.  The basic problem is that anyone who's job is marketing is
| going to, at minimum, feel they must try to get any edge possible for
| their product, and that's if they are ethical, which some obviously
| aren't.
|
| I still have mixed feelings about all this.  I think that allowing a
| direct response such as Rick's ought to be ok, yet Daniel has
| convinced me otherwise.

then the appropriate option for anyone that wants to respond to something specifically in a commercial way is don't, but go ahead and post something timely about your product or service in c.d.o.marketplace -- without a cross-reference reply to the OP
