    Hey (this is not a polite way of introducing your post),

    With respect, I strongly disagree. The "Hey ..." is not just good, it is excellent in this type of communication, namely advertising copy. It reflects the current vogue in slang among the demographic they are going after.

    Demographic ... what a regrettable noun.

    Well, Hey to you probus! I think you should review the original post. The introductory statement including "hey" was not part of the "advertising copy". Rather, it was a request for someone to review what followed.

    Yes, you are right. I stand corrected.
