Pam and all,
Too many people forget or ignore the fact that some individuals who
are experts in the field of histotechnology are not employed in just
clinical or research laboratories. If one is involved with a company
doing technical research and development of a product destined for
histoland, then they are should be very welcome to comment.
Knowledge should not be smothered (flames!) I don't see you as a
salesperson, but a valuable resource providing me with information I
can choose to use or not. All part of the learning experience.

I agree with both Gayle and Barry yet have one reservation. I was
hit several times on this server for answering very general
questions and told salespeople should not be on HistoNet. Although
my answers had nothing to do with any product we sell and by the
way I am not a sales person, just technical and product
development. After the second incident that several others came on
and agreed we were not welcome I stay off 99% of the time. It is
difficult to walk the line here and not be on privately only. I do
agree that if it is a sales pitch it should not be on the line as a
reply that should be private answers only.
Thanks for letting me say this and I hope no one is offended.
