The answer to that one is complicated. At times some believe more in

the person than they should. Some people are just gullible and despite
the evidence staring them in the face, they trust the source of the
rumor. Some believe that if they answered the question of who said it
they are betraying that person.
As you can see, it can get complicated.
I know of a dealer who has spread many rumors the last one that I know
of being about 2 months ago, yet he has customers that defend and
protect him. I'm not going to mention names because I've already
received legal threats from that direction, but I will respond to
obvious falsehoods with the truth. Yet despite the truth being
presented, the fans refuse to accept the facts. (shrugs)

Why are customers willing to hide people who pass on false information?
No one gets good service from rumors, especially if it really is coming

Ann, As you saw my only question to the original poster was where did
you hear this rumor.
I only asked because this is the second time someone told me this but
although I have asked, neither person has divulged from whom they
heard this false rumor. Hopefully David will cough up the information.
i do have a possible source in mind someone who has a history of
starting false rumors regarding the Victor Reader devices, and seeing
David's last post adds weight to my suspicion as to the source of the
rumor... Of course you know who I'm thinking of Ann.

Weapons against rumors are the answers to the Five W's. Who told you
the rumor? How reliable is that source? What proof did your source
offer? What he said either makes sense or doesn't. Why would she tell
you the rumor and more importantly why would it make sense to her?
Where did your source get the rumor? When was this started? Now we
come to the most important question of all how does this information
benefit the rumor source or the object of the rumor? Qui bono? Qui
Now I could go through all the above questions and quash the rumor, but
I'll let you all do that. Please remember that the Victor Reader
Stream is one of Humanware's largest cash cows. That's all I'm going
to say about this except to repeat Qui Bono?
