Okay dudes, please let Brian and me decide what is spam and what is not, okay? For example, Scott at HTC and Mauro at Denimbar and Brian at Peasant occasionally post about (their own) sales on this forum. And Coldrice essentially sold off of this forum. Strictly speaking, all those posts should be on the Buying and Selling forum, but these guys provide a good resource for stuff a wide range of people here want (as opposed to, say one item), and their posts might get lost in the Buying and Selling forums. They are, in addition, all good guys, friends of ours, and don't abuse the privilege.
And Marshall essentially just said "Hey, I am in denim manufacture in China, and is anyone interested in learning more, opportunities, etc..." No specific offers, nothing to suggest spam as we know it. Plenty of Japanese denim have Chinese subsidiaries, and the domestic Chinese denim is not so bad either, not to mention that Chinese manufacturing is becoming (as in all sectors) increasingly important. So let's give the guy a break, okay?
