Re: Freedom Scientific's Lack of Support for Hardware

Yes and no. Yes I care what they do. But if they supplied me with a product 
I felt comfortable enough to buy then what gives me the right to tell them 
what they should with the money they earned? I am not trying to be 
argumentative, but this idea that we as consumers have some sort of right to 
tell a company how to operate just because we bought one of their products 
baffles me. If one of my customers would have tried to tell me how to run my 
business he would have been shown the door in a big hurry. Do you do the 
same with every company you do business with?



Thanks; Gene
