Of course it is apropriate.
I think that Seaside is an entry point to Smalltalk in general and to 
the Squeak world in particular. So, if people are comming to smalltalk 
by means of Seaside, this kind of messages can show the other 
*interesting* things that are part of the squeak world. We have to 
remember that Seaside is just a part of a bigger set of technologies 
and, the more people know about them, the better for us.
It is very difficult already to convince *enterprises* to use 
alternatives to java/php/.net, but if we can reach a critical user base, 
as the ruby on rails did for ruby, we can have a better chance to bring 
this technologies to them.
By not allowing the spread of information like the squeak new are trying 
to do, we are just working agaist this goal.
So I vote to allow and to contribute to the spread information by this 
and another means.
