Oracle intrusiveness


#1

Hi Jenn -

We don’t appreciate you lifting our user’s email addresses from our Toad forums
and contacting them with this message. Why do you hide the fact that you work
for Oracle?

OK, it’s only Tuesday and I’m thoroughly confused. Course it
doesn’t take much. How would Quest lowering the price for Toad prevent me
from buying from Quest?

I guess if they lowered the price too much, you might assume it’s just a
worthless piece of crap (like *** *********) and not even bother to try it.

I must admit that I don’t like the tone of the questions.
Rather aggressive approach.

Is there a banning policy on the forums? So, that if she tries this again, then
she is banned?

the policy is pretty much “act foolishly long enough without providing any value
and we’ll show you the door.”

If I find her account I’ll nuke it. But I think she’s pretty harmless. Certainly
embarrassed. Maybe she’ll at least get a grammar lesson for her troubles. This
is what she told me privately, reminding me that, indeed, there are many
Jennifer Foster’s in the world:

I don’t work at Oracle.

of course as Greg pointed out, plug in “Oracle” for the Company field and -
oops. Coincidence?
