If we permit them to sell us a bad product it will just get worse. If we say nothing they assume we don't care!
A mentor once told me, "Action ignored is action accepted." Everyone make sure that from who ever you purchase from, inspect it and then leave a feed back for all to see. Vendors will be forced to take a closer look at their products if reviews are hurting sales.

There is no moment like the now moment.
