No way!

I have to agree with Martin here. There should be no advertising at all
on this group. As he said, if all the suppliers started posting, we'd be 
swamped. I can grab an issue of Biotechniques or something if I wanted to 
know what kind of products are out there. This newsgroups gives me the 
nitty-gritty details of molecular techniques. Advertisers will only tell
us how wonderful their product is. If it's that great, someone else will
mention it.
