Yes not reverse that.
Not "if they contact you", but rather you contact them :)

We all know what happens if we just let people contact us, the phone grows

Then you're not understanding me.

I am not speaking at all of sites that use home-built systems.
I am speaking of vendors, who sell application abc, to *others*, and yet their 
advertising is squelched by all the noise.

If I have a client who is say a video rental store (they do still exist) and 
their existing software company has vanished, the owner is most likely to say, 
gee let's look at what's available in the market to move our data to.

If I can say, here is another company, also making software for your exact same 
vertical, and luckily, they use the exact same database.... that is an 
to me, and the client both.

I can't do that today, because unlike some other databases, their doesn't seem 
to be any such resource to list who has what app for sale in the MV world.

Hi Will

What you are raising is the issue of internal customised U2 sites which are a
dying breed.   The new market is applications where people buy the applications,
not the database.   Vendors see no benefit from advertising that they use U2
where they get no financial benefit and they could disadvantage themselves.
Even Oracle based packages are talking less about Oracle.  If a site is
Microsoft SQL Server, why get yourself knocked off the list.   The trend is such
that Oracle is buying ERP tools to sell, because people no longer make decisions
on Databases.  SAP is moving the customer to their purchased Sybase database.
The market is all moving towards applications as the decision making process.

George and I advertise that we run on U2 product, but many of the ISVs don't see
any benefit.
