If they don't like my distribution method then they are free not to ask for it.  Nobody's making them ask for it.  I *CLEARLY* stated in my original e-mail who the intended target audience was.

Actually, I *DON'T* have their e-mail addresses anymore.  Because I
delete their e-mails after a successful delivery of the document to the
e-mail address that they have provided.  I'm not interested in keeping
the e-mail addresses of a bunch of strangers.

I haven't cherry picked anything.  I can expect anything that I like.
They seem to expect me to distribute my document in their chosen
distribution model.

That's about the poorest, and most off-target, analogy I've seen in a
long time.
