There is a big difference between announcing
the availability of open source software which
I can learn from, and announcing the release
of a new/improved closed source program which
I cannot freely use, adapt, and modify.

If every XML related commercial product were
announced here, the noise ratio would be
extremely high... and to let one commercial
vendor announce without chastisement is 
just plain unfair.

Further, when ever open source products
are announced here they are usually announced
by regular participants -- on average commercial 
announcemnts are made by individuals who have 
shared very little with the serious content 
expressed on this list.

Lastly, there is a captive audience of serious
professionals here. A post costs us all a good
deal of time ($$).  I'm here beacuse I expect to 
receive e-mail from my peers.  Commercial vendors 
are not paying for me to see their advertisements.  
Are they?  Why should they be privleged with 
advertising rights upon a medium which they have
not built.  

I hope this helps explain how I and I think
many other people on this list feel.
