For those of you who would like to answer, please answer Francesca off-list. As previously mentioned, I prefer that the List be focused on Teradata technical issues and that the List avoid the promotion of products.
I don't mind that somebody asks on-the-List about whether products are available or what people think of those products, but please answer such questions directly to the author of the question and definitely off-list.
I realize that this limits the value of the TDATA-L List from the point of view of some people, but the List was founded with some pretty specific goals set by the Owners (Jay and myself) and the promotion of products/services lies outside our purpose - this was outlined in the Welcome Letter and Rules of Conduct.
If somebody has a problem making a product work with the Teradata family, then it's appropriate to answer on the List. But if the answer is similar to 'Try this product' or 'What do you think of this product' or 'Where can I get this product', then you can ask the question on- the-List, but PLEASE answer off-the-list. I'll modify the Welcome Letter to make this more clear.
Thanks in advance,
