Are you claiming that no one was lowly paid before food stamps were introduced? You do realise that people in poverty don't have the luxury of turning up their nose at a job because "it doesn't pay enough", right?
I don't agree, but since you seem to have stopped saying anything, I'd say we're at an impasse.  You, with absolutist principles (with acknowledged potentiality for not being wholly true that apparently isn't relevant), or me, with a flexible approach based on multiple avenues for investment and no specific judgement either way.  Sorry, but I prefer my way.  And I don't see that I insulted you any more than you patronised me.   Toodles.

"respected audio publications" sounds like you're making shit up.  Why not say which publications?

 Yeah, wouldn't it be great if FileMaker had the price and attention that Apple give Aperture. Oh, wait...

That directly implies that it is less...
^ Totally agree, but it was you that said Musk's preference wouldn't matter.  It would, a lot, even in the case of a very aggressive hostile takeover.
