4420Re: PR Tools for 2009 (please add on)
- Jan 8, 2009Please contact their owner. You are paranoid.
Corrective criticism Ned, your website sucks.
I didn't spam this group. I wanted to start a list of tools for PR
professionals. It appears to me that I walked into a room filled
with uptight, self-righteous, judgemental, paranoid..and let me not
forget RUDE individuals.
Sorry to crash this party.
Moderator, please kindly remove me from this group. And, do you
honesttttlllly think that I'd put MY link to a EMAIL GROUP without
engaging you -- FIRST about my product. That's true EMAIL MARKETING.
You are ALL rude!
I hope that I am allowed to have a rebuttal since my posts are
moderated. These jerks are trulllllllly closed minded.
