I second your assessment.

What we have is blind leading the blind. "Keith Thompson" A CORPORATE
MINDER - with multiple accounts - on a Crusade to limit discussions of
useful nature on the usenet, must be giving anti-education, pro-
illiteracy corporatists (who did much of studies and development on
TAX-PAYER MONEY, maybe from now on we should fund Indian/Chinese/
Vietnamese/Russian/Cuban companies that have a tradition of sharing
knowledge from the socialist value system) ,lots of joy because that
means more market for their "user-friendly" , "thought-killing"
products and high priced courses.

You will see how consistently, she gives short replies, that have
ZILCH educational contents, compared to the volume of details they
boast on their websites they claim know.
