PopeRatzo's point is entirely valid and relevant to this story. I'm sympathetic to his post because I happen to be in exactly the same position (Apple's policy is stopping me from becoming a customer). I do not see where he is whining. Rob R. you seem to have quite a chip on your shoulder feeling you have to justify the choices you have made. You remind me of a beaten wife, defending her husband's actions "he only does it because he loves me".
