How does anyone here know fro sure if Peter is telling the truth?  Who 
can say whether it wasn't he that stole the code from the other guys?  
Unless someone here knows for sure, then we have to take his word fro 
this incident.  But, either way, it is still slamming the competition, 
and pretty severely at that.

Possibly, but Peter didn't make that clear either.  If was being 
completely unbiased, he prolly should have made that clear.

Since this is a free country, everyone is welcome to put anything on his 
.sig that he wants, but since it is a rule here not to advertise, then 
the .sig needs to go.  I had a "GDS Racing" .sig when I first started on 
the list, but deleted it when I found out about the rules here.

I talked to Ned for 20 minutes last week, and he never once mentioned one 
of his products, or that I should buy this or that, or that I should stay 
away from anyone else.  He told me about new brakes that they are working 
on, answered my questions, without even suggesting his own products, and 
this was not on the Quattro list.

	I think Peter should refrain from pushing his own products, and 
slamming competitors.  No advertising - that's the list rule - lets stick 
by it.
