We have rules on commercial advertising, and this is severely testing  
my good will on that front.

Post ONCE to see if there's any interest. Then talk to the vendor and  
get -details- and commitments, and post back.  Then WAIT.  If you  
can't drum up enough interest, take a hint that not enough people  
want it.  Unless you have something new to say, don't post...that's  
just spamming.  It's not like your message is getting drowned out a  
sea of other posts.

Don't get "suggestions".  Get COMMITMENTS.  In writing.  Not over the  
phone- on paper, fax, or last resort email.  Not just for pricing,  
but delivery dates as well.

If you cannot get quantity/price commitments, and/or there is no  
"drop dead date"'s not a "group buy"'s "free advertising  
and someone doing our sales work for us for free".
