I had thought that was obvious. The inference was certainly there. I did not spell it out since this is a forum and I had no inclination to turn this into a thesis. However, it is also obvious that price is your determining factor. Nothing wrong with that as long as it is declared up front. [...] > > > That's a good idea.

Labeling it as sarcasm does not change the fact that it was exactly what you meant. If I wear a T-shirt that has emblazoned on it: "touch me an I will kill you", and someone actually touched me and I make good on the treat, I cannot claim that they were forewarned. By the way, what bothers you so much regarding free enterprise, with the possible exception that you are not experiencing any monetary rewards from it? I personally I detest what many corporations proceed to do. However, it is their money and they have that right. If you don't like their product, either ignore it or make a better one. Bitching is for losers. -- White Hat [EMAIL PROTECTED] __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Tired of spam? Yahoo!
