Adam,

Please tell us what connection you have with this website. You are not
asking a question, you are advertising it. You shilled it twice today.
Last month, you posted about the teasite here, on the pretext that you
"just found this website". Today another person (Juliana) using the same
domain for email also "found a website" (the same one) and shilled it here.
(See the "Great New Tea Site" thread.)

Wasn't it an individual named Adam who started the infamous "bottled
white tea" being so delicious, and available at "such and such a
place" some time ago? I could be wrong, but I think Juliana/Adam is
the same person who has touted his or her web site on more than one
previous occasion.

I remember that guy. The person who owns the company posted using an
account on AOL ). Questions about where to buy it came
from one or more other accounts, but not the same as Adam or Juliana. I
never could prove to myself one way or the other whether there was a
connection.

"Look at the great website I found" seems like a common ploy used by
business owners who think we are not very smart and that they can get away
with it.

I would like to personally apoligize for the confusion. that was my
first time posting on this site as requested by my bosses to post for
teanas.com. I had thought that this was a place to share tea
information and such.

For your information (and so you can tell your bosses, if you dare),
advertising is frowned upon in general on Usenet. There are some
newsgroups where it is okay. Usually they end with the word
"marketplace".

Whoever decided that you should be deceptive and act like you were a
potential customer, not an employee, probably knew this. If it was your
bosses, they are not honest people, and maybe you should think about
finding another job. If they are asking you to lie, maybe they lie to
you, too. If it was your idea, well, then it would seem that you have
just lied to us again. If. One reason why I raise this possibility is
that both you and "Adam" posted your articles from the very same IP
address! Now, perhaps he is an employee too and you both are posting
from work. If so, there is more deception going on because instead of
posting from the company's domain, you are both using accounts at
nutechnix.com. This is to be expected, since the idea was to hide your
association with the company. OTOH, maybe it is only you and you are
posting using multiple names (more lies). So, there is an issue of
trustworthiness here. For my part, I will never buy anything from your
company or accept what you say at face value. After all, you have lied
to us before.
