Rick,
        As a flownet subscriber (and as a full-time technical director of
a vascular lab for the past seven years), I do not object to information
from vendors which is supplied to answer a particular question, as long as the
vendor identifies himself and the company with which he is connected.  I
think the average flownet subscriber is intelligent enough to decide how
much weight to give information supplied by a private company
representative.
        Mike's message focused on Bill's question, and he did identify
himself as a representative of Cardio-Vascular Evaluation Systems.  The
information provided might be of use to other flownetters, so I don't
have a problem with his response to the list service.  If there was
anything inaccurate in his information or if you have additional
information, we would certainly appreciate any details which you could
provide.
        We have read enough messages to know that you object to
"advertising" on the flownet.  I understand that you represent a vendor
and respect the integrity reflected in your concern about advertising on
this list service.  But, in the future, could you respond to vendors by
private e-mail as you have asked others to do?

Thanks

Mary Watts ( who had a former brief career as a vascular applications
specialist for medical equipment)
