No, you claimed that he had given you "proof". Therefore, where it came
from is irrelevant - the fact is that you claimed you had something you
simply did not.

Er, sorry Bert, but that's "altar". Although in your case I think
"alter" is a very Freudian slip.

You know next to nothing about economics and nothing about business.
Companies are answerable to their customers. It is they who choose to pay
for their products. W/o the customers money, which they are free to give to
a competitor if said gives them sufficient reason (lower price, better
claims service, etc), the stocker holders get bupkiss.

Time to put up or shut up Billy. I never said that he had given me
proof. If you believe I did then it is incumbent upon you to provide the
evidence.
