    Gentlemen: Are you aware that Mr J Walling of your purchasing dept is
    spamming all over the internet asking if anyone has any left over Epox
    EP-4VKM3I motherboards? He says your company needs anywhere from 10 to 500
    of them.

    Epox has their own web site and maintain a list of vendors here:

    Your company seems to provide ruggidized computers and computer parts.
    Looking at where Mr Walling is asking, and
    sci.electronics.components as well as, those
    places seem a good source to locate salvaged parts. Is that really what you
    company needs?

    Please spank Mr Walling for spamming your companies reputation all over the
    internet as shown here

    I think you mean
    The board has been EOL'd by Epox. We were purchasing the boards direct
    from the Epox but now they have no further stock, and will not be building
    any more of them as the chipset is no longer manufactured by Via.
    Thanks for the free plug.
    I did not once mention salvaged parts, you should brush up on your
    deplorable reading comprehension. We need boxed or OEM only.
    Yes. We need 10 to 500 Pieces.
    Not likely. I've already discussed your email with the owner. He thought
    it was quite amusing.
    It's not spam, Mr. Stateson. It was posted once and crossposted to four
    newsgroups. Well within Usenet guidelines. If you would like to educate
    yourself with regards to identifying spam, please see
    I'll add to the newsgroup line, perhaps
    someone might elaborate there.

    Or not. HAND.
  4. ? Is that short for "Talk to the hand cos the face ain't listening?"
  5. Don't you realize that posting email is a violation
    of netiquette and possibly of copyright?
    You obviously did not or you wouldn't be posting so stridently.

    Commercial postings (either selling _or_ buying) are
    inappropriate (SPAM) for at least some of the xposted NGs.

    I posted that email addy and it was a mistake. I removed my own email but
    failed to remove the comarkcorp domain from the list of people complained
    to. You are correct about it being a violation of netiquette and I should
    have just left their proper names as that was all I intended.

    Yes I did, and yes he was - he even forwarded Joe Statesons attempt to
    netcop me. You are free to believe what you want.
    Maybe. Selling I can understand, but someone looking to buy or source
    parts I'm not so sure about. In any case, I was unable to find a charter
    for any of the groups I posted to:
    No charter for or
    No charter for or sci.electronics.components

    I realize that newsgroups are often defined by those who actively
    participate in them, though. I have no problem with not posting wanted
    requests in the future if that's what most people feel in these groups.
    Not spam. I posted a URL for the definition of spam. Did you even bother
    to read it?

    Thanks for spam baiting my co-workers, netcop.
    You shouldn't have posted them at all.
    And which would those be?
  9. In a year of haunting (and posting on) SEC I've never seen anyone get
    slammed for putting in a parts request until now, it's almost an every day
    event. As most seekers are also after them for their own commercial
    purposes, that suggests there's a nice amount of tolerance, generally.

    Also, no-one seems much bothered by a commercial response to such a call,
    if it IS a response, and not a transparent attempt to look like one while
    actually spamming. I guess if someone has seen enough of a particular
    commercial responder they might killfile them, but those who earn a rep for
    coming through with decent offers seem to be tolerated, after all, many
    people never know for sure when they might need that help too.

    For a once-in-a-blue-moon request like yours, your post seeemed entirely
    reasonable to me.

    I suggest you ignore the self-appointed Usenet Police. I too object to genuine
    SPAM and the like but this is not such a case.
