Harvesting e-mail addresses from public source like a BBS or Usenet isn't the best way to make friends and gain customers. You can do it, but the reaction will vary from mild acceptance, to indifference, to outrage. Personally, my reaction would be somewhere between indifference and outrage. I might read the message, and make a mental note never to do business with you, or I might just delete the message unread. Either way, you'd lose. If your product is worth promoting, spend a little money promoting it and buy a banner ad.
