Equating sales with killing is a ridiculous step to take. Everyone has
to sell, even those taking an anti-sales stance are selling their
position. Sales encompasses much more than the "common" misconception
of the guy in a striped coat and straw hat. Not only that, I think you
are really misunderstanding the difference between sales and marketing -
since we exist more in a "culture of marketing people" than in a
:"culture of sales people". It is the difference between attraction and
conversion.

And it is easy to blame ourselves - guilt is passive.

I think the discussers are all right on. But now I'm craving a big fucking cigar, either that or an instantaneous WEB 4.0. I'm truly sorry if I have nothing to contribute but an affirmation of information received.
