Pam,
Yes, I completely agree with you and Ron Canazzi. Only if they can benefit from making the change, but only if they benefit from it!

And if they have the idea that doing something good will make them more profit, they will probably do it, but only if they think it will. Pam.

Long story short: as an old time professor once told me "There isn't any businessman alive that is in business for his health. They're all in it for what they can get--profit, profit and more profit."

I consider myself somewhat cynical as well, but I'm sorry, I can't go
through life assuming that every single person's motivations in the

There's a basic tenet that I like to follow.
"cui prodest?"
or
"Cui bono?"
It means who benefits, basically, and is one of the major tenets in
investegation and legal proceedings. I found it helpful to think about
life in general through that filter. When it comes to corporations,
government entities, especially. Again, a corporation is all about the
bottom line. There's always an agenda.
Anyway, it helps to view life through this filter. Then you're not
surprised when some corporation gets caught with egg on its face. I
don't think google is going to stop spying on its users; they'll just
be more subtle about it. Microsoft has already been yelled at for
doing it in windows 10, but it's still happening. We had a discussion
on list about that a couple of weeks ago.
