Before you all ride off on your ethical high horses, let me tell you about
the company I work for. They produce medical billing software. They charge
upwards of 20k a pop, including hardware â which clients MUST buy from us.

Our latest product was rushed out the door to keep up with competitors.
Minimally you would expect it to be able to print or submit claims electronically.
It canât - too many bugs. Our salesmen out and out lie to current customers,
telling them that they have to buy this new version or they wonât be HIPAA
compliant. We sell used equipment as new. They take the PCâs off our desks and a
guy in HW cleans them up and puts them in their original packaging.

This lack of ethics repulses me. I nearly become physically sick when I think
about it. But itâs a paycheck and a pretty good one at that, considering the
times we are in.

Semicolons â Geez, you people obsess about the silliest things. Lighten up!
You take yourselves way too seriously.
