WELCOME to our "Who's Who of Advertisers in the Flute Network" page! We hope you find it helpful. Please know that to the best of our knowledge, all links to sites included here are to legitimate companies with helpful web pages. However, it is sad to have to also add this note: due to the recent misadventures of some few rogue internet scoundrals, we must caution that The Flute Network can take no responsibility for what you may find upon arrival, nor the "treatment" you may receive there. Still, we do strive to be concientious in minding our links -- if you do encounter something dis-satisfactory, please let us know. We may or may not be able to do anything about it, but Our Policy on Honesty does indeed apply here as well.
