Exploiting markets is what it's all about I'm afraid, there is no other way,
no matter how you justify it, or what way you like to look at it, you're
still exploiting a market when you try to sell to it, or buy from it, yeah
sure we add fancy words like service and product, but we still are
exploiting.

I'm certain that all parties involved in a sale are only interested in
themselves, and the best deal they can get, again exploiting the situation,
oh right, that's wrong and unethical.

Wrong? Who say's it is wrong? I'll do whatever it takes to keep food on the
table, whether that be killing a cow (oh poor cow) or exploiting a market
before someone else does, the same way other companies such as Microsoft,
Oracle, etc, etc did before others did.

Yes I am proud. It's allowed me to retire at a young age 30-40. And no I'm
not breaking any rules, there are no rules against this type of trade, or
sale, and never will be, because it goes against our 'real world' laws.

Really, that is a really naive thing to say, I'm sure you meant to write
that differently.

LOL, thanks that was funny.
