Well, I dunno, it could also mean that an organization
with enormously successful marketing skills was able to
make hay out of an alternative that makes heedless yompers pay excessively
for often really unsuitable machinery. No?

Perhaps. But I would hope that people would buy what they need as opposed to
what they THINK they need or are TOLD they need. As for the "heedless yompers,"
they're going to get taken no matter who does what.
