That implies their client is misconfigured and that should be their problem

I would urge caution about paying too much attention to a vocal minority, to 
the potential detriment of the majority who aren't complaining.

Now, if this was being driven by 508 compliance for accessibility and there 
simply were no other viable options, it would be more difficult for me to 
have grounds for a complaint.  But so far I haven't heard terms like that.
