sigh.  you don't understand what I'm saying, and consistently argue against
some exceptionally silly points that _nobody_ has _ever_ made.  it is
obivously a religion to you to believe in "consumer power", so there's no
point in demonstrating the silliness of what you believe others are saying
nor in pointing out that once you get past those silly beliefs, your own
arguments boil down to exactly nothing.
