Hmm. I don't think that there is a moral high ground in this battle.
If a company wants to have ultra-gloss advertising, but a crappy product,
that is thier decision. The only time that we would really be able to
protest is when their advertising crosses the line between advertising and
brainwashing. The problem is, there isn't a clearly marked line that we
can point at and say "No." I think we'll have to stick to the old rule:
"And if it hurts none, do what thou wilt."
