| As ethics are often personal - you ARE going to get a wide variance of
opinion.

Which is pretty much what I'm looking for. We all have a line drawn in the
sand somewhere. I'm curious to find where that line is drawn for other
writers, and how much difference there is between an action you might
disagree with but still document, and an action that you disagree with
strongly enough to resign (or never start).

Is a company unethical for using dubious but legal marketing practises?
What about the difference between a resource company who's everyday
activities are environmentally bad, but they are working to change for the
better and a resource company who has the same everyday activities but is
not working to change for the better?
What about a small company that can only afford to buy software every 30
days, and uses pirated copies for up to 30 days and then buys the product?

I am not in this situation, just curious.

Geoff
