Ooooh. John really fired back. I saw the inapproriateness of the
book plug as well, and John's reply made me wonder about

I normally cite the book(s) I use as reference material when
responding to topics in this forum, especially if I quote
directly from the text. Once I even used training materials from
a course, so I cited the course provider in that case. Is this
being perceived by *anyone* as being a plug or sales pitch for
the items I cite? That is certainly NOT my intention. I believe
that I've been doing the proper (and legal) thing by citing

Comments, please.
