If I mentioned this yesterday, forgive me:

A MAPS employee should know better than to suggest that. However, Maps was 
bought by Dave Rand and I believe Dave Rand sold out to Trend Micro. If 
this is correct, then perhaps Doug Otis should bow out of this 
conversation, seeing as how he works for one of the big AV vendors.

I'd like someone UNBIASED to take up his side of the discussion, please. 
I'm really not inclined to listen to an AV employee explain why they 
should be spamming us.
