Everything today is about shareholder value. Nobody, but nobody gives a flying frog's fat fucking ass about the end user/customer/employee/etc any more.

Well, don't support public companies then if at all possible. Public companies = greedy shareholders

On the other hand, end users/customers/employee's don't care about schareholders either. Sounds fair to me.

And why should they especially when companies are acting like this more every day, proving the almighty dollar is more important than anything up to and including human lives. Companies give us nothing unless we pay, with money or information, they are not entitled to us caring for them. Companies, however, should most definitely care about customers, as if they go away so does the company.
