Stop using this forum to market your products. It's just a sophisticated form of spam.

Let's start calling him and jamming his phone by placing bogus orders.

or even better would be someone local to them setting up an automated dialer - that does the pink bunny thing (keeps calling, keeping calling...) denial of service - not pretty but they may get the idea...

I'll probably get flamed for this one but isn't spam an attempt to sell something in a totally unrelated forum or newsgroup or using unrequested mailings to email addresses. Even that last one has some precedence in fax mailings and telephone telemarketing. Its really the word *unrelated* that spells spam; isn't it?

IMHO being told where we can get the things we are looking for, isn't exactly a bad thing. If Tom tells the forum of his buckets or if I were to tell the forum, its the same in the end. People are looking for his available and inexpensive supplies for y2k. Tom, Diana, etc. are in positions to help us get these things. So they make money doing it and we end up alive. Don't you think that's a fair exchange. :-)

I agree with Floyd.

An occasional post advertising relevant preparation goods in a courteous fashion should be encouraged, because the good news of a product's availability will counterbalance the bad news of another product's unavailability.

Why are the buckets so expensive? The going price average that I have seen is 2.50plus tax. cc container in California.

-- david (pingpongdave@dreamsoft.com), March 16, 1999.


Where in California are getting this price? I am guessing it's Home Depot, where I priced 5 gallon plastic paint buckets at about 2.50. You have to call the manufacturer (printed on the bottom of the bucket) and ask if they are food grade.

I don't feel comfortable with that kind of verification (over the telephone). So I have been getting used buckets free (or $1.00 each) from local food establishments.

I wonder though, seems it would be OK to use non-food grade buckets, as long as you place all the food inside a sealed mylar bag.

I'm looking for 5 gal buckets in LA area, prefer the san fernando valley area. Are the buckets at Home Depot food grade? What kinds of resturants use the buckets? Any suggestions.
