Thanks for sharing. As a former evangelist of the business, you must feel completely betrayed and gutted. Consumer protection law is becoming a thing of the past. The client vs server relationship between us, and the businesses which are supposed to depend on us, is being reversed. This is just a glimpse of the future for us as consumers, as long as the entities “serving” us exist for profit. Profit driven businesses supplying necessities for civilisation do not compete with one another to death for our trade; they do so for our complete captivity. Ironically, they have no choice in that either. Trying to discipline them for this kind of behaviour is like scolding a cat for killing a bird, or a dog for biting a human. It is in their nature. The difference is that some cats and dogs can be cute.
