I made a posting sometime back to let some you know about product that
has really help me keep my living room cooler in this very hot summer
we are having. I have confirmed that the unit has some impact on my
cost of cooling. I recieved my electric bill this month and it is
about $35 dollors less then my previous bill before I bought the
AirFlow Breeze. I believe it really works. I have not had to adjust
my thermostat each evening before going to bed. The Breeze has
allowed me to balance my living room with the rest of the house.
FYI I first saw this product in an Ace Hardware Store in Mesa, Arizona
I will let everyone know what happens with my Aug bill, it is very hot
this month too.

In all fairness, it's a lot more than a fan. It's a fan made to fit
into a register opening, with a sail switch so it turns on when the AC
blower comes on. And it pulls more air through the duct. For people
that have an upstairs room, at the end of the duct run, that isn't
cool enough, it looks like it could help cool the room.

Didn't you test the product thoroughly before you put it on the market,

Well maybe so if it appeared in your private email inbox as UCE
(unsolicited commercial email) but not as a single post in a public news
group where at best it could be considered "off topic." Just for the
record I hate spam passionately but it's also a pet peeve of mine when
people mislabel posts as spam.
Sorry - the strict definition is as you said. I was using it in a way
I have seen it used many times also - an unsolicited commercial post
in a newsgroup not dedicated to that purpose.
I will even go so far as to say his post was not very far off topic,
There may be people looking for something just like that - but he
should be upfront about it - if it's not a spam tactic why resort
Anyway - dead horse.
It certainly was trickery and dishonest to post it the way it was posted.
But it did appear to be hand posted and not spewn from some automated
process and wildly cross posted to a ton of news groups. That is more my
idea of a spammer.
Wanted to comment on the last few postings, this was a test as to what
kind of activity I could get from a group like this. Very interesting
range of comments. Everything that was in my posting is parphrases
from customers. I would like to pose a question to the group. Does
this forum help you in finding solutions to your problems, wether it
be a product or a service? If so how much trust does this forum have
with one anothers advise? If you notice there is advertising on the
margins of your forum and I am tring to determine what the
effectiveness of the forum has for advertising products.
'Advertising on the edges of your forum'?
Yep, another clueless newbie that thinks Usenet = Google Groups.
Google REALLY needs to increase the size and details on their disclaimers
about what they call 'Groups' actually is. It needs to be on the main screen
when reading news, and on the screen where you compose posts, not mentioned
offhand on a help screen.
If I notice advertising, I don't read any further and totally ignore the
advertising. This is a newsgroup for discussion of the topic at hand. It
is meant to be non-commercial so any advertising here is unwelcome. I'd go
out of my way to avoid buying from companies that try to get a freebie here.
Anyone advertising on USENET is scum. Your "test" here puts you in the same
category as you are looking to exploit those that come here.
You stepped in it buddy. As you can see, there are many that
strongly oppose any commercial posts here - and rightly so.
While I think it's too late for you now, here's what you should
As an 'expert' on HVAC you could come here and answers questions
people ask in that area, building trust, all the while not pushing
your product. Via your signature line you could have a link to
your site, and/or you could include you're title as VP of whatever.
If there is a situation where your product may help you could
mention it, assuming that most of your replies are not about your
product, but genuine help, and when you do (occasionally) mention
your product you clearly identify that you are connected to the
But you went and screwed that up - what a shame.
Bottom line - trust. You only get one change in the ruthless
world of USENET.
Now, it you're brave - you could apologize profusely, take your
lumps, accept that many will just kill file you and/or attack you
when (and where) ever you or your company show up - and try to
redeem yourself with honest help to others.
Now hopefully I won't get fire bombed for giving you advice, much
less talking to you, because I kinda like this group and would
like to stick around!
