I would have no objection to the kind of advertising David is talking
here. It seems clearly different from a commercial enterprise. I would
rather open an email that said: "I've published a short book you may be 
interested in" than one that says "I'm out of the office, blah, blah
blah." Or, worst 
of all, the dreaded "me too."
