He's read only on the list now.
He hasn't "offended" me, but it seems quite obvious that complimenting your
own products on the list isn't exactly a smart idea.
"My servers are great", "No, no, my servers are better", etc...

Sorry if I've offended you.  

I've never spammed the user group with RLX info.  I was responding to the
concerns regarding VA Linux and other Linux vendors that have left the
hardware business.  I believe that the RLX solution could be a solid
replacement for many of the those (probably not all) users so I passed along
information that others have found useful.  

And yes, I do work RLX.

Of  course,  I  would  never  buy anything  from  someone  who  does  direct
advertising of his company's products here, just like I'd never buy anything
from any spammer.
