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:
http://www.epox.com/USA/purchase.asp

Your company seems to provide ruggidized computers and computer parts.
Looking at where Mr Walling is asking, sci.electronics.equipment and
sci.electronics.components as well as comp.sys.ibm.pc.hardware.chips, 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

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.
Your company seems to provide ruggidized computers and computer parts.

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.
Is that really what you
company needs?

Yes. We need 10 to 500 Pieces.
Please spank Mr Walling

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
http://www.killfile.org/~tskirvin/faqs/spam.html
I'll add news.admin.net-abuse.usenet to the newsgroup line, perhaps
someone might elaborate there.

Or not. HAND.

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:
ftp://ftp.isc.org/pub/usenet/news.announce.newgroups/comp
No charter for comp.sys.intel or comp.sys.ibm.pc.hardware.chips
ftp://ftp.isc.org/pub/usenet/news.announce.newgroups/sci
No charter for sci.electronics.equipment 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.
..agreed..

And which would those be?

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.

problem with someone looking for EOL component support on
sci.electronics.components.

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.
