About SpringSource's marketing

Look what i just got today:

subject SpringSource Application Platform


Thank you for your interest in SpringSource Application Platform, an excellent alternative to J2EE application servers.

Are you available Thursday or Friday of this week for a telephone conversation? I would like to understand your requirements in detail
and answer any questions you may have.

This happened after I registered for a webcast about the newly released Spring Application Platform. I have given my information to the big boys before (IBM, Oracle, etc etc) and never got an email as intrusive as this before.
Anyway, being consistent with the inversion of control pattern, my answer is: No Mr Clement, do not call me; I'll call you if I ever need your help. And no, you will not be able to understand my requirements in a phone call as not even I am sure of what they are.
