    Fark them?

    I would like us to start hanging people who ruin lives. If a person shoots another person, really only a handful of people are negatively impacted. Your family member is slain, things are rough for you maybe, but overall the country doesn't even notice. (unless you're Batman) But when you drive a company the size of Hostess out of business with predatory business practices and try to scapegoat unions who want total in bennes what one of your executives makes in a year and succumbing to mistakes anyone with a B in high school econ could point out you should be hung by the neck until dead. It is much, much worse than mere murder of an individual.

    "Scary" tag is perfectly appropriate. Amazon is pursuing the same strategies that made Walmart what it is today.

    If you want some help with that, I tie a decent noose. Though I think the guillotine is probably faster and more symbolic of how people traditionally dealt with these people.

  • Amazon's business strategy involves passing up short-term windfalls in order to secure solid long-term gains

    If they outsource management over seas, I might invest.
  • you know how there are people out there who are unwaveringly loyal to apple, and will buy any apple product and act like it's the greatest product ever, and will wait in line to buy the new iphone12, and will adamantly defend all of apple's business practices to the point of absurdity, and everyone mocks them for it?

    i'm beginning to feel that way about amazon. i love amazon. they can do no wrong.

    That's also just called a good business plan. Just ordered myself a gross of toilet paper. I don't care how much it snows. I'm ready.

  • Amazon's share price has nearly tripled over the last five years. That will keep your investors happy.

    My toilet paper looks gross when I'm done wiping. I don't have to order it pre-grossed.
  • As a customer I love them.

    As a support engineer with a service request from them right now, not so much. Abso-farking-lutely ridiculous request. Rudely demanding, with no standing to be so. Probably just the person, but man is she a poor reflection.

    I have been assured that immediate cost-cutting measures guaranteed to return an immediate profit are always desirable and always ensure long-term sustainability.

    /Living in heavily conservative Kentucky may explain that.
  • A business planning for the long-term instead of the next quarter? That's Unamerican!
  • I hadn't ordered from Amazon for years but recently I picked up Amazon Prime and farking love it. Amazon won my heart over for now. If they start screwing me over then I will just pack up and take my business elsewhere.

    Shareholders will still say it's inadequate and pressure the business to do stupid shiat for short-term gains while undermining the business as a whole. I hope they resist that.

    Its just smart. Its what China does. Take the long view. Don't plan for 50 days, plan for 50 years.
  • I'm just glad I can have them do untold amounts of damage to the environment via wasted fuel so I can have two day delivery of paper towels.

    Yeah the grocery store is five minutes away, but they cost like an extra 12 cents there.

    I'm with you. I also have similar feelings towards Google and Costco. (As well as a couple of regional franchises, but those are not important right now).

    Some people aren't afraid of a convenient way of buying goods at competitive prices.

    We call these people "sane."
