Hey Randall. We're not competing. We announce here because we were asked
to, and because we have a reciprocal agreement with SF, they announce on
our lists.

It's just a release announcement for a complimentary tool. Not
advertisement. It's all free software!

I love you too man!  :)

But again, it's not advertising. And it's far less than once a month.
Every other tool in the ids field puts release announcements up without
issue. Why do you see us as different? It's gpl. It's IDS. It's snort
syntax. :)
