It is appreciated, Diana, I'm sure, by most on this list that you had nothing but philanthropic intentions. As an aside, I once mistakenly sent a sales advert (not 501c3 appropriate at all) to the list because the email somehow made it into my bulk customer list. After catching myself and making profuse apology for the mistake, I ended up unsubscribing and re-subscribing with my personal email so that kind of thing wouldn't happen again. Anyway, I doubt it's what you did exactly that is a problem but what others might decide they can do because of what you did. Advertising policy and other PBS policies do not show up in the footer of every email. It's just not practical. I guess what I'm saying is that I felt like a "naughty little boy" when I made my mistake, so I'm supposing you've been made to feel bad by someone's clarification of the rules, whether by how you respond to clarifications or by how the clarification was made. Hopefully, they didn't say anything condescending, and if they did, shame on them. -- Mr. Kelly M.
