Well, I've been having this disjointed conversation with TearLab about objectionable marketing methods on that site via my blog, their blog, and this site.
I've tried to raise my points in an equable, measured, restrained, diplomatic, thoughtful kind of voice. Rather a habit of mine. Ever make you want to vomit? Yeah, me too. ) Tonight I am feeling so disgusted with this little dance, the wordcrafting and doublespeak of the responses and ultimately even the sound of my own voice that I just want to chuck it all, pound my fist on the desk and scream,
JUST HOW STUPID DO YOU THINK WE CONSUMERS ARE?
IT'S STEALTH MARKETING.
WE ALL KNOW IT. 'NUFF SAID."
Aaaaah. Now I can clock off and rest easier. I know they aren't going to change anything for my sake, but if any or all of you choose to heckle TearLab about their allaboutdryeye.com site, and, uh, not that you need my permission but... all I can say is you have my blessing. (So long as you aren't mean . OK I'll stop now.)
