      Thanks, Shane.

      Just to reiterate on this point: In this case the tester did exactly the
      right thing. The manufacterer was approached to provide additional information.
      The manufacturer rep managed to determine that the caller was a BGT Tester. The
      manufacturer offered additional product, not for testing, but as a friendly
      gesture. Nothing illicit was intended or attempted at any time. To his credit,
      the tester realized the potential exposure and made a public posting to the
      group explaining the situation. Well done. That was exactly the right thing to do.

      When in doubt about a particular situation, post a question to the group. If
      you are concerned about a public posting for one reason or another, post to
      your monitor or moderator who will then take approprate action.
