Re: OT: antivirus software

My e-mail started on a low key--calling them "capitalist swine"--and told them, ALL IN CAPITAL LETTERS [like I was yelling from the mouse pad and they were slightly deaf], that if they didn't issue a credit to my account within 24 hours, I would report the theft to the sheriff.

They did. Makes me wonder, however, how many people tell them to buzz off when they pull that sleazy trick. Must be like found money to them.
