Right. And would it be too difficult to change the red to something that is
more acceptable - while keeping the [whatever the non-red button will be]
and the gray button kind of in line with the company's logo or design
colors? This kind of very obvious-kind of solution can easily get lost in
the ether of what is going on there, perhaps.
So they have scheduled a meeting. That's good. To me, the color red is a
flag for danger. Maybe they are going to decide to lower the amount of
danger in the world.
