Jim,

I *do* mind you copying my private email to you and posting it
to public groups. It is a breach of confidentiality, and, in
extremely poor taste.

More importantly than that, you violated your non-disclosure
agreement by publicly posting confidential, proprietary
information of third parties.

You have also used an IETF mailing list for the purpose of
promoting your proprietary product. The IETF is an independent
(read vendor-neutral), non-profit organization.

The only time when it is permissible to discuss a product on an
IETF mailing list is when you are answering specific questions
or clarifying specific issues about it that have come up on the
list. You were not doing this. You were using my private email as a
foil to get on the soapbox about your product.
