Karen at ClayAlley is our "official" vendor because for years she's given the
list members a discount, donates to our charities and provides perfect service.
Vendors who use

Now some folks may call me a hard ass for this.
I don't care.
What I want is to have vendors who use this list for
spamming purposes to know that if you don't give
discounts to the list members, if you don't donate to
our needy ClayMates, if you don't participate without
your hand in our pocket, then you don't need to be
Karen has given so much to the list
members behind the scenes it would embarrass her for
me to make a list of it all. Those who have received
Newbie Boxes and boxes of donated art supplies will

CITY-o-Clay, never participate in a real way, spam the list

donations and discounts. The Team that volunteers to
CITY-o-Clay have voted in our last meeting to clamp
down on these spammers, give them a chance to really
contribute to the clay community since they are making money off of them.
If these vendors don't want to "pay forward" to the
community then they don't need to post on
