    You're right: it is disgusting and pathetic.
    Not sure why Lavasoft are so surprised ?
    Expecting 24 hours of silence or something?

    It is terrible that our frames of reference have shifted so far; have had to shift so far: that 'we' the decent folk, now have to and do anticipate this response.

    Sad reality is these guys are utterly ruthless.
    Totally different mind set. Sociopaths.
    No real change to behavior there.

    Can lead to very deep discussions re current perceptions of what crime and exploitation is and are at this point.
    cf: Enron, Babcock&Brown, Lehmann's, bottom feeders V topfeeders: who is worse, really: the Corporation as sociopath.

    In the short term in this WWW: watch out: just part of the foodchain if you're not careful.
