Any method of marketing may generate sales, whether or not the method is
appropriate. The end does not justify the means. Not everyone has
filters. This is a list about Celtic culture and, IMHO, your sales pitch
was inappropriate, a violation of Netiquette, and unwelcome. And, by the
way, there is such a thing as negative response to aggressive marketing
techniques: you may have generated some sales, but your attitude has
also alienated me from any interest I may have had in your product, no
matter what its merits may be.
Now go ahead and flame me.
