Why would we want to call someone who posts to newsgroups in contravention of the charter, doesn't have a business name, can't refer us to a website and doesn't have an email address.
It could be worse ... you could have given a mobile number

Sorry if it offends Tony, I don't see a problem at all.
I have a friend with his own business, I am trying to help him out. He specialises in Plumbing not computers. I myself am not a whizz with either, but I have used newsgroups before and found them to be full of mostly positive, helpful people.
All Advertising is good, and for anyone in the area, who would be looking in this newsgroup, it may be of use.
He may have a website, I will ask for you.

I guess Tony as only so upset, as he sells plumbing too?
Maybe we should all mail him first to ask permission on what we do and don't post?

If you followed this group you'd know otherwise

No, check out http://www.diyfaq.org.uk for the rules:
"... Can I advertise on uk.d-i-y?
COMMERCIAL ADVERTISING IS FORBIDDEN ON UK.D-I-Y. This is an interactive forum, and the good "signal to noise ratio" of uk.d-i-y will be spoilt by those who selfishly exploit it. If you want to advertise, go to news:uk.adverts.. (etc) or start an appropriate newsgroup (see http://www.usenet.org.uk ). If you do abuse this newsgroup with commercial adverts ("spamming"), be aware that uk.d-i-y has experts who have successfully had spammers disconnected from the net. You will also find that the response from its loyal and close-knit readership will be counterproductive: readers will actively avoid your products and no longer recommend them to others ...."
The OP might also note that please.co.uk is owned by DC Tech Limited NW5 who might take a dim view of their domain being used by him (assuming he's not using it legally).

No, not "All Advertising is good". There are groups where advertising is welcome, and others where it isn't. It payes to spend a bit of time finding out about the group you're about to spam.

That would be good.
There are several regular posters to uk.d-i-y who have businesses and perhaps mention them in their signatures.
However, they also contribute from their expertise and so if they occasionally mention a product or service that will be of use to someone to whom they are replying, that is useful and reasonable.
What is not reasonable, is to make an unsolicited post for a product or service that is commonly available, and pointless if there are not a complete set of contact details.
So, if you want to contribute expertise, that's fine and you would be very welcome.....

It might not have been too bad if you had simply put it as a friendy offering of information in a cheeky plug kind of way rather than wording it as a blatent advert!

But you post with a 'nospam' address while spamming? Strange logic.

Then you could publish his full name and address. If it's a legit business, what's the harm?

Most advertising is lies. Or misleading at best. If you say he can undercut the opposition, give some concrete examples, like product X at Y quid. Then it's easily checked.

He gets you to post a spam, but has his own website? Not really believable, is it?
