Well, for one, I wanted to answer
because I understand the need to
maximize income from a sale, and happen
to own the same equipment they're selling.
No one here has to buy this system or
pay any more than they want to, so I
don't see any abuse occurring.
You use the word "profit" but there's no
profits involved here unless for
example, they bought the machine for
$500 and sell it for $1000. The sale is
a loss to them which they're trying to
minimize (yes, I understand the "losses"
might've been long written off by now,
but it's still a LOSS).
