Default What Happened?

I thought I posted a message to this group to let everyone know that EPC was having a one day warehouse sale @ 20% off everything. They even opened up their warehouse to the public so people could see everything they have available. They deal mostly in used Compaq office type machines and parts. They do have some new parts and peripherals as well. Well it never showed in the group, I wonder why? Must have been the snow...

As it is I picked up a couple of cosmetically challenged monitors for $20 and some other assorted parts. It was a good deal, particularly for folks looking to pick up a decent PC on the cheap as well as getting parts to upgrade existing machines at a great price.

Well that's past, but I would like to mention that they are a good source for parts. If anyone is within driving distance of the Cave Springs Exit off I-70 in Saint Charles County, Missouri, USA, it's at least worth stopping in to see what's available.

Spammers get paid, I don't. I just offered it as a source for parts and
peripherals for Compaqs at some pretty cheap prices. With their annual sale
you can get some good deals.

Question to the group at large, is that spam?

That's not spam. If I put up a deal that I think is hot but have nothing to
benefit from it other than letting some internet "friends" know about it,
that's not spam. It's a service.

So if I can get you, or anyone else for that matter, a deal on some
parts for a Compaq, how do I let you know? I'd feel like a real ass if I
know were some one could save a couple of bucks or locate some hard to find
parts, and didn't tell them.

Actually you're right, it really isn't spam.

A message is Spam only if it is both Unsolicited and Bulk.


http://www.spamhaus.org/definition.html

This wasn't bulk by any definition. In fact, a Usenet post could never
really fit the exact definition, but a post across multiple newsgroups or
repeatedly would certainly fit the spirit of spam.



A single post, suggesting a good source, from an individual, for a company
to which they are not related, isn't spam.
