I became a flexnet user and have been one since 1998, un-interupted. I've paid (aprox) $10.00 a month for 14 years. $120.00 a year x 14 = $1680.00 just so I can have an @shaka.com email address. Every month I get a Flex warning to pay up. You'd think that I might get a complimentry month once in a while but that's business. Your moniker asks if it's too harsh and to respond. You could give a little ground to loyalty. Guess not. Since Flexnet is not my ISP perhap I should consider changing my email address. jrh
My grandpa (since passed) once bemoaned paying for a bag of poi at the local corner grocery shop (since remade into restaurants, the latest incarnation a shabu shabu eatery) for years and years. He told me "that store should give me free poi, since I've been paying them all this time and they've made a profit off me all these long years..."
I said not a thing in reply. I was around 7 years old at the time. But even at that age, my young mind didn't agree. Really. Couldn't explain fully at that age, but I knew it was wrong for grandpa to get bags of poi for free.
I appreciate all the business you've given to flexnet over the years and I hope you have received something of value in return. Thank you.
However, at anytime that type of relationship is unbalanced it should be terminated by the aggrieved party. None should be forced to do anything they don't want to.
Our current president would never say such things! And we the people shouldn't be forced to pay money to those that refuse to work!
