You and your kind really need to stop whining, as I said in my original post.
That wasn't what they said. If they said that, the controversy would not have occurred. They had said that accounting rules require
us to charge this fee, which they do not.
As I'm a stockholder with a fair amount of money tied up in Apple, I appreciate their attempt to do the best for the company.
Look, I was one of the first here to defend them. But, I prefer they just explained what they were doing.
I'm certain their statement was vetted by their lawyers to be accurate. But, in doing so, they also made it sound as though there would be a penaltymeaning that they would not have obeyed the law, if they didn't charge this fee.
We are arguing at cross purposes here.
I understand what Apple is doing. What I'm not happy about is that they attempted to make it sound as though they were forced into it for reasons other than the ones that prevailed.
