    This has nothing to do with whining or whinging. A company can be rightly blamed or criticised for their respective methods if they are breaking laws or infringing rights by using unjustified and unfair methods. The social darwinism of ‘force majeure’ is a weak and bigoted argument and does not accurately reflect all business practice. It is a projection of a subjective and invented ‘Gordon Gekko/Sun Tzu’ universe that only exists in Hollywood movies. It doesn’t even accurately reflect or parallel the biological realities of Darwin’s original theory. In its essence it is a gross oversimplification and a reductionist argument designed to promote a particular and tendentious world view.

    In this case they arent breaking the law, so your whole post is meaningless and sole purpose is to bash a point of view you disagree with.
    You have you opinion, i have mine, that is it. feel free to ignore it next time.

    Well that's what we get when regulators allow monopolies to form and kill all possible competition. At the end, users are those that lose most. It's been shown many times and it's no different with Google.

    exactly, the blame is on the regulators and people who let them do; only narrow-minded people missed the whole picture and just blame the company.

    You'll notice 'if' is a subjunctive. So my whole post is totally relevant. I think someone is becoming paranoid here.
