Thanks, I've been really ruminating over it.

And I thought of a different example of the kind of thing that might illustrate why I felt the marketing was getting out of hand and made the "imaginary" remark: just read about a brand new official psychiatric disorder known as "Internet Addiction", complete with Diagnostic Code for insurance companies. How is that legitimate? Why is it not a manifestation of say, OCD or social avoidance, you see? Or even boredom at work? Will there be tv commercials soon saying, "You might not know, but your internet use is not your fault. It is a terrible, but fortunately now treatable very serious medical condition we can help you with (using our old antidepressent that hasn't been selling well and which we just re-packaged). Millions suffer from it and don't even realize it. Talk to your doctor today, and ask for the treatment. Tell him to call us if he's never heard of this very treatable problem because it can get much much worse if you don't."

I better stay away and go do something else for awhile myself...

> A PBC like the one you got is just a reminder or a phraseology memo, not a rebuke for your intentions. I think people understand that.
> It's different when PBCs are given for nasty, mean behavior. Your post was not in that category. Be well.
