On 2005-07-09, Sherm Pendley scribbled these
curious markings:

... wow ... plonking someone for mentioning a book *which they didn't
even write*?

Well, if you inspect the URL:


Take a look at ref=pd_bbs_ur_1. That is someone's Amazon affiliate ID.
If you click on this link, then but something from Amazon a month from
now, that person will make money (if you haven't clicked on someone
else's affiliate link in the mean time).

As such, Sherm is right on. This is spam.

The OP's ISP will be hearing from me when I get a chance.

PS: I'll join the plonking of the OP.

Indeed. May I draw attention to the _author's_ site:

http://www.yqcomputer.com/ #free

"My contract says that after the book is published I can
distribute the complete text from my web site. The content
of my book will be available to everyone everywhere for
free. Watch this space for updates."

I'm the author of the book. I just want to say that I have never
heard of Sherm Pendley, and I had nothing to do with his announcment.

In article < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,


The announcement you were plonking. I got the names mixed up; sorry.

I wanted to make clear that neither I nor my publisher were
responsible for posting spam on this newsgroup.

Which is good, because Sherm didn't make one. We're all pretty sure you
had nothing to do with Casey's announcement either, though.

Given the other examples Tad has found, I doubt anyone is willing to
believe you. I am hoping your ISP takes this seriously as well.


Incidentally, your signature delimiter is incorrect: It should be two
dashes followed by a space followed by a newline.

Oh, before I forget again, *PLONK*.

That said, if you can, buy the book anyway. It's real good. If we buy
this one, maybe he'll write more! :-)

I intend to. Acquiring new books is not a problem... now spending time
reading them and, more importantly, finding bookshelf space is!

[ re Higher Order Perl ]




Wow! You also have unread books on UML - I bought one years ago and another
when I was in Amsterdam... I have never opened the covers of either.

They are at the bottom of my books to read... first I need to
increase my German so I can read some 'Koelsch Krimis'. Opps, I am
going wildly off-topic.
