These whiners will be the same "evil asshole" when they, although
it is very unlikely to happen, build their own national/international
backbone and won't peer with the regionals.

Why is Sean getting the pleasant compliments about a VERY logical 
business move on behalf of his company?  People need to wisen up

it revolves soley around money.  Anyone that's into free help..  
please call me.  We are looking for cheap labor.
