There are two points of view on this and they come up every time we go through a realignment of products. Hashing it over hasn't, and won't, chance either sides opinion. I don't think there is a right or wrong side to this issue.
For the record I'm one of the telling a company what products you like is OK, but in the end dollars make the most noise. I've kind of mellowed out that petitioners are going to petition. I'll still fill the freezer with products I use, extra full if they make the realignment list.
Worst case, I'll find a new product/process, even if it is mixing my own chemistry or cutting sheets from rolls.
Speaking of that, think I'll get the hassy out and burn some Tri-X.
