Good post, can't take nothing for granted in this economy.

Concept really needs to reevaluate their marketing dept.

Isn't that the truth.
Very well said.

Wow over 4300+ views for just this thread...That could be allot of potential money lost for that company.Not to mention if you search concept in OSO or a major search engine you'll find these threads and that is NOT good publicity...I think we all just need to let this thread die,whats said is said and whats done is done. Let it go...

I agree.
However, this has, as many threads do, lead to much deeper discussion.
Maybe a lock is appropriate, but not a deletion.

let's a$$ume that only 1% of the board population would buy a Concept... any Concept...

that's a guaranteed $$$$$ loss of over 1m in sales... guaranteed money

if one of my employee's cost me 1m in guaranteed sales, they'd be gone in a minute..... or less

especially when I understand that Concept laid off some good employee's due to the current slump... those layoff's could have been averted

so Susan probably cost a few people their jobs, cost Luis about a potential million $$$ sales loss, and she still can't afford closed toe shoes.

I would bet my prediction is truer than Luis wants to admit, unfortunately... he's a good guy, with a good product, with an arrogant condescending sales force.

The Sanctimonious one?
I was showing it to some people at work and "poof."
I wanted them to know the real me, as described by a person who has never met me. They wanted to buy him a clue.

I didn't even get a chance to explain how difficult it really is maintaining self pity from "atop a pedestal."
