[QUOTE=Brendan Hugo;613383What do you think is causing this? Frankly, I think a lot of it is jealousy. Jealousy over public opinion, jealousy over advanced technology. [/QUOTE]

In a word, lawyers. Corporate lawyers. have nothing better to do. Of course, matbe the companies shouldn't hire them in the first place. But I guess they are hired because consumers sue them, some lawsuits of which should also be thrown out (eg "Oh my coffee is hot, I'll sue.").

The second word is accountants. They can't see the forest for the numbers. And companies are increasingly run by accountants.

Of course there are reasonable lawyers and accountants out there. Some are required to get through the red tape belonging to the various levels of governments.

I guess that makes the third word Government. It wsa actually kinda nice to read this post showing that at least one branch of gov't had some common sense. All too often a very rare attriute.

My apologies to all reading this for getting up on my soapbox this morning. Some times that part of my brain engages, and this is the result.
