    Ever notice how the Evil corporates often do this at Christmas.
    They do it so when everyone returns from holidays they think everyone will forget .
    It will be lost in the Xmas frivolities.

    I bought my first new HD in 83 and have bought a few new ones since then.

    If they keep on doing this shit I will take my money else where.

    Corporatism is just stealthy communism. They want to make us all into peasants.

    Well I am in a battle similar right now and I can take my services to an opposition company and also take allot of turnover and profit.

    Business is about building relationships. Corporates are about destroying relationships
