I'm sorry, but the correct answer that we're looking for is :

"Customers."   Because they have customers who don't just put up with 
it, but encourage them by *PAYING THEM MONEY*

All "really stupid" companies that make "really stupid" products, 
stay in business because"really stupid" customers pay them them 
"really stupid" money.  So, who's stupid?

This is not only relevant to network operation, but life, as a whole.

It's not my opinion, it's the truth.   (is it not a fun world we live in?)
