Par for the course for corporations. If their products were exploited in such a manner, they would be in court in a heartbeat. A new on for the list... cheat the poor. Well maybe not so new.

How patronising by the companies. Another example of corporate amorality.

The houses that need help would probably fall down, they so cobbled, if a paintbrush touched them.
