Sounds reasonable to me.

FWIW I lurk on multiple lists,including this one. I use a commercial
product to assist me with my Snort deployments.
Advertising in lists turn me right off.

The companies that get our business are the ones that simply use

"We have a $PRODUCT that can do that. Contact me off list if you want
