By failing to respond to the PERCEIVED THREAT in a timely fashion, they endangered the children who might have been harmed had the threat been real. Since they failed to protect the children, they should be sued for negligence. (Think of the children...)
I don't understand how Gibbs behavior can be said to not work. How much does being benchslapped cost him versus how much he's making? Likewise with the "No, you're being unprofessional" defense. What has he lost really?
You are neglecting the fact that the resale value was decreased by the limitation. That 40-80 mile limit, limited who the car could be resold to, thereby limiting the resale value, thereby increasing the actual cost of the vehicle.
If the resale value had been guaranteed to be say, 60% after so many years, preferably by the government, then they might have sold.
This could be used to rip the CD companies a 'new one.' What if "their" property was contaminated with something, and then disposed of in a place that needed remediation? wouldn't they be required to remove (and then decontaminate them) thereby costing them millions of dollars?
It's a blog, not a thesis. They don't need, and we don't want (Ben et al. 2008, p1), extensive references in APA format. I have to agree, as much as my family loves the game, that few people do. Hence the "rather dull" comment.
These companies are NOT allowing anyone else to ask questions, SO the ONLY way to get a fair chance, which we both agree everyone should have, is to lie. In other words. They are acting immorally. In a perfect world, a policeman would come along and arrest them, BUT there is *no one* to arrest them, therefore - LIE TO THE BASTARDS, and you are doing the right thing.
Some people just pay the bill, if it's not too ridiculous and blame themselves. It's been going on for years and won't stop until the idiots learn. Since idiots DON'T learn, it will go on forever continually enriching the CEOs and making life less pleasant for all of us.
