    I just read the last two articles about UPS on Brown Cafe. Both published by Hoovers. Each one has a <u>FedEx</u> Advertisement!

    Who is minding the store?

    I saw that too. Some of these guys need a swift kick in the butt.

    And how, exactly, does UPS control which company Hoovers accepts ads from? You may think UPS controls the world, but they can not dictate what company a firm accepts advertising from. The articles you read are linked from the Brown Cafe, not written by them.

    My point is that UPS could easily advertise with Hoovers AND possibly work a deal that UPS ads would appear with articles about UPS. I, and I believe most of us, realize that Brown Cafe only links the stories and that there is no connection to the ads accepted by Hoovers.

    Of all the adds that Hoover's is able to use, I find it odd that two of those happened to be from our competitor, linked to a story about UPS. Can this be a coincidence?

    Hoovers will accept money from anyone who wants to pay for ad space on their articles. FedEx knows to advertise on any article which pertains to shipping. Yes UPS could buy ad space but it would be a waste of money because I think UPSers are the only ones who read them anyway.

    A woman was sitting at a bar enjoying an after work cocktail with her
    girlfriends when an exceptionally tall, handsome, extremely sexy
    middle-aged man entered. He was so striking that the woman could not
    take her eyes off him. The young-at-heart man noticed her overly
    attentive stare and walked directly toward her. (As all men will.)
    Before she could offer her apologies for so rudely staring, he leaned
    over and whispered to her,"I'll do anything, absolutely anything, that you
    want me to do, no matter how kinky, for $20.00......on one condition."

    (There are always conditions)

    Flabbergasted, the woman asked what the condition was. The man replied,
    "You have to tell me what you want me to do in just three words."
    (controlling huh?)

    The woman considered his proposition for a moment, then slowly removed a
    $20 bill from her purse, which she pressed into the man's hand along with
    her address. She looked deeply into his eyes, and slowly, and meaningfully

    "Clean my house." (YOU GO GIRL!!!)
