I only picked Frame as an example that comes up frequently on the list. I
use the product a lot, and I like it. Nor do I know anything bad about Frame
or Adobe.

However, I'd just like to point out -- as an abstract matter having nothing
to do with the specific example -- that testimonials by third parties who
are not as disinterested as they seem are one of the "standard" means of
advertising on the Internet.

I would not draw the line on the basis of the poster's stated affiliation. I
would look more at the information's accuracy, usefulness, and relevance to
the list. ...RM
