    Mind listing some of that unconscionable behavior here? I'm an employee at the former Sun, but I haven't paid a whole lot of attention to the wider business world since the takeover (I'm also just getting back into reading Slashdot...). The main effect of the takeover on me personally has been improved job security in the near term, so I'm curious what else is going on. Thanks.

    To the bystander, it sounds suspiciously like YOU were the jerk in that scenario. You just told off phone support reps who have nothing to do with the acquisitions and business policy of Oracle.
