Correction. It's the only way they can make a point about pricing problems where their words will appear "in lights," so to speak.
There are plenty of ways to voice displeasure at perceived pricing injustices. Ways that make even more
logical sense (not to mention having a better chance of landing on the desk of someone who might actually be able to do
something about it) than putting it in a review on a site that has (had) no control over the pricing. The problem is... those more productive/appropriate ways of complaining aren't nearly as cathartic
as publicly blasting "The Man" in a public forum where millions of people, who already
agree with you, can read your impassioned—albeit misdirected—words.
