    You can try to upload your music and get it reviewed by the We7
    Tastemaker community.
    All tracks that pass the Tastemaker challenge are made available for
    download and if it's good enough you get paid for downloads.

    This bit of spam I don't get.
    1. A bona fide HFI representative wouldn't be using a hotmail address
    2. HFI should have no need to spam Usenet with this stuff and I can't
    fathom them doing it

    It's inconceivable to me that this spammer is even remotely associated
    with HFI. What benefit could he possibly get out of this?

    It could be a joe-job. Or it could be an enthusiastic but ignorant
    junior member of HFI staff.

    And who says I'm a HFI representative?
    I find the information interesting and I post it here because it might
    be of interest to other people.
    What's the problem?

    None of the above.

    I sincerely fail to see what's wrong with the post.

    Please, explain what it is that bothers you so much.

    Because it's SPAM, that's why. And why would you post it unless you're
    either a junior member of the HFI staff, or doing a joe-job?

    I hope they can you.

    Yea... right.

    Someone who never posted in these newsgroups before all of a sudden
    starts posting SPAM?

    You must be a joe-jobber.

    The explanation above looked pretty clear to me. Are you asking him to
    repeat it?

    It's unusual for people to read an ad for some arbitrary service with
    which they have no affiliation and to be seized by the urge to place a
    note about it in multiple Usenet newsgroups in which they don't
    participate purely for the benefit of people they don't know. It isn't
    unreasonable in these cases to suspect that the note is a more-or-less
    disguised ad posted by a person who stands to benefit, directly or
    indirectly, from the posting.

    One time I saw a real idiot pull a stunt where he made himself out to be
    an ordinary consumer just like us who had discovered this fantastic
    product that he felt he had to share with us. He got really quiet after
    someone pointed out to him that the message's headers revealed that it
    had come from the very company that he was pretending only to have
    happened upon.

    No one. You never identified yourself in any way, which made it
    suspicious from the get-go. If you were a regular in these newsgroups,
    it would still be spam but the ensuing discussion probably would have
    taken a different turn.

    Besides the fact that your message is essentially unsolicted advertising
    and as such is unwelcome here, it appears as if you signed someone
    else's name to it.

    "Jim Garrett
    Recruiting Manager
    Human Factors International"

    Jim Garrett is located in Iowa
    Your IP indicates that you are located in Spain.

    And as was pointed out by someone else:
    "It's unusual for people to read an ad for some arbitrary service with
    which they have no affiliation and to be seized by the urge to place a
    note about it in multiple Usenet newsgroups in which they don't
    participate purely for the benefit of people they don't know."

    It's not just unusual, but rather unheard of. This sort of thing (to
    this extent) is never done by a disinterested third party. There's
    always a hidden agenda.

    And then when I pulled a sarcy reply, I get a wonderful and highly

    Do you really believe that I quote my own posts and then sign them in
    third person?
    I mean, really, what's wrong with you people?

    Believe or not the only interest behind the posting is nothing else
    than provide useful information.

    Glad you liked it.

    Keep us posted on your progress.

    BTW, Peter Gabriel is behind We7, and no, I'm not friend of his, I

    Sorry, it's SPAM - plain and simple. See the FAQ's for the groups
    you're posting in - most do not like ads.

    Typical response for a spammer - especially a stoopid one.

    But your joe-job doesn't work.

    Of coruse it is. You did read the charters and/or FAQs of the groups
    you posted to in order to check that advertising was permissible there
    before posting, didn't you?

    No, you didn't. And how do I know you didn't? Because at least one of
    the groups you posted to forbids advertising. So in at least one of
    the groups your post was unsolicited advertising.

    Then do you now accept that posting it was a mistake and promise not
    to do it again?
