Subject: INTA TMtopics List Policies

Dear Mr. Heinze,

Your recent submission to INTA's TMtopics email discussion list violated the list's guidelines and policies in that it was clearly self-promotion. (Please see - specifically underGuidelines "Do not blatantly promote yourself or otherwise spam the list. Self-promotion should be kept to a brief signature file at the end of yourposts. Signature files should not exceed 5-6 lines.")  Please be sure toreview the list guidelines and policies before sending any postings to thelist in the future. 

It was my mistake in that I did not realize your submission was apromotional piece until after it had been posted and several othersubscribers inquired about the nature of it and its acceptance.We strive to maintain the list as an informative and beneficial resource forall and these types of postings would contradict that mission. Thank you in advance for your understanding and adherence to these policies.If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

My apologies for the signature file and any inconvenience.  I did receive a thank you note for the article from one reader.  Quite a few readers also checked-out my free I/P Updates website.  Some even subscribed.  Feel free to do the same.
