I have learned never to trust sales people. When it comes to dealing with online
merchants, what the sales contact at the manufacturer says will not be sufficient
reason for return for a full refund, of a device which turns out to be unsupported.
Then why contact them?
My question to you is - why do you have to resort to assuming such a
pompous attitude via questions like "Your thought process intrigues me."
I'm afraid this is your interpretation.
There is a fitting description for such attitude, but I will not spam
this mailing list with such a vivid description.
Then please reply off-list, as I did.
