I get the odd email from him too. Sometimes I make a comment comparing prices from prosing, karaoke.com or some other store, and he lets me know that prosing has it for $x,(lower price than the website says) or something like that. He's never asked me to post about it, and if he did ask, I'd just tell him to post himself. He wants to draw sales, then he can do the work, unless he offers me a cut LOL.
You're under the impression that Prosing will listen to me? I've asked them in the past to stop bothering people on the Sound Choice board - especially because it usually has nothing to do with SC products.
So, I see they continue to ignore me. My suggestion is to "unsubscribe" if you can. If not, email Prosing (try Jeannie or Sam Strauser), or Mr. Black and tell them directly.
Yes He is !!! I got an e-mail/sales pitch "out of the blue" from him back around Christmas. I was not impressed, and DID NOT PURCHASE from Pro-Sing because of it.
I've since delt with "Bob" on other items. The first time, the process got messy... shipping to Canada - Duty - Tax - Exchange Rate... Promises were not kept... But Pony is less cynical than I. She forced the issue with sugar (I'd have used vinegar and a club) and we were compensated. Subsequent dealings have been pleasurable. He seems like a good guy in spite of the unsolicited contacts and aggressive aproach.

I also get something similar. It started out sometime last year as regular mails from another company called "Karaoke Deals", then some months ago they were replaced by Pro-Sing offers. I definitely didn't subscribe to that...

I, too, have been receiving mail from Pro Sing. Fortunately (or unfortunately), every time I try to open one, I get the "warning" message: "This program has performed an illegal function and will be shut down."
We all love Netscape, don't we?

Hello Geezer Is there something that we need to correct in your email address or do you need to be removed from the email blast. Bob

In all fairness, I have received a lot of email in the past 5 years online. I would rather have friendly, benevelent, and helpful email than some I received from one KJ terrorist, I will not mention the site (it was not THAT SITE's fault - they have done things to counter this as best they could).
I can tell you that if this is as bad as your email has gotten - no cyber terrorist attacks on your name or reputation, or the pornographic emails we all get at some point, then yes, block the unsolicited email if your email address is ANYPLACE online. You may miss a deal, I have an open mind, and several such emails from different people HAVE helped me advance my own business many times over the years.
I guess it depends on how you look at things. I HAVE had some very benificial email that I never solicited, along with the other stuff I have mentioned. Like life take the good with the bad, and if need be HIT DELETE - I wish life was that easy!
Bob Black has done me some good things, unsolicited. Of course I have dealt with Pro Sing occasionally since long before they moved to Florida!
A PS: I over the years have dealt with many reputable online dealers, as listed on my web site, like Pro Sing, TSC Karaoke, Karaoke Warehouse , Karaoke.com, etc. They all sell the fine Sound Choice line, and many other items besides, discs of various manufacture. I try to keep an open mind.
