Posting suppliers' e-mails or quotations on this forum - not allowed!

Please do not post "private" correspondence in this "public" forum. As an example, a laser cutting company has a reasonable expectation that their quote would not be advertised to the whole wide world (incl. their competitors). Same goes for any other e-mail correspondence......unless all the parties know (and agree) that a mail will be posted in public, don't paste a mail onto a forum.

It is more or less okay (judging by other forums) to summarise and say you were quoted 123 by the company XYZ, but even that makes me a little uncomfortable if I put myself in company XYZ's shoes.

You could even shoot yourself in the foot by publicising a special deal that you got - you might not get it again if they suddenly have 100 people wanting the same deal.

I know the folk who pass on the prices are trying to do their best for the community, but I would just ask more consideration for the supplier.

Gerald,
I hope the pricing I specified in my laser cut parts post is ok? My supplier and I did discuss how we would handle multiple orders if interest was there.

Heath, if you said to your supplier that you would be telling your group of friends about it, then it is surely okay. I have an issue with exact copies of quotes, with letterheads, signatures etc. In many European countries the quotes would even include bank account numbers.
