Unsubscribing from Ebay? Impossible! How big brands cheat their customers to enslave them

Big brands still struggle to understand you can't force people behaving the way you like, that's against freedom. What's really unbelievable is these folks think that while on the Internet everything's allowed. You can restrict people's will, you can enslave them to receive your s**t, Everything!!!

Microsoft for example requests a account to activate your PC. Would you believe it? 
If you don't have a Microsoft account, you won't be able to access certain apps like Skydrive for example. A real blackmail in pure mafia style.

If Eleanor Roosvelt were alive, these people's butt would have been kicked down the road. Unfortunately in today's world we take for granted that on the Internet, rules are different from the real world, like if on the Internet we become different people from those who live in the real world. 

In these people' sick mind we transform ourselves in virtual beings with no knowledge of the most basic human rights.

Time has come not only to end this dictatorship that tramples over our rights of human beings but to tell these "people" that this new world made of software we are building it has to be shaped on the user's needs and not on their selfish predator instincts.

And you know why? Because if your company doesn't adhere to the most basic protocols of Governance, Sustainability, Human Rights, Environment Stewardship you are going to be dumped by the very same people you are trying to frame.

You don't buy customer loyalty by enslaving them into a labyrinth from where they cannot escape because if that's the way you behave, I am going to dump your brand forever, and while doing it, I am going to post it on twitter so that the whole world would know what a genius you are.

Are you guys totally retarded?

How can an average folk being so naive that in today's world made of social media you can behave like a total a*****e?

I was checking my email today and I found an Ebay newsletter from Ebay Italy.

Down below the email body I was looking for the unsubscribe button and guess what? it aint no unsubscribe button whatsoever.

If you scroll down your ebay newsletter email you will read a short terms of service that reads as follow:

eBay Europe S.à r.l.  sent you this email because your notification settings indicate that you want to receive information on promotions, offers and special events.

But the problem is I don't want to receive this kind of information.

The disclaimer goes on and here's the most interesting part:

If you want to change your notification settings go to My ebay / Settings / notification settings.

Please be aware that in Italian language, the word "Settings" is being translated as "impostazioni" while the word Notification Settings is being translated as "preferenze di notifica"

I obviously and immediately went to My ebay/ looking for the settings button but I wasn't able to find any.

Of course I couldn't, because it ain't no settings button within that drop-down menu.

Please take a look at the picture below and look for the word "impostazioni" that is the italian translation of the word "settings". Can you see it?

Despite considering myself a PC literate I had to spent half an hour to find the way to get rid of this newsletter. You know where the notification settings are?


Now, why in the world eBay has to cheat  its customers, making it more difficult for them to unsubscribe from a "service" they don't want?

Is it possible these people do not have any idea of what the word "Freedom" means?

Do you realize people do not like to be enslaved? they don't like it Off line as they don't like it On-line.
You guys have to be aware of  this, because otherwise you might risk of going out of business once a smaller competitor of yours has a higher respect for people's rights.

Time for the big brands to take notice that Internet Users cannot be treated like objects by sociopath companies that don't care of their free will. 

The future of On-line Commerce is all based on the quality of Customer Engagement and eBay on this field is at the lowest level.

EXCLUSIVE: The Cambridge Declaration on Consciousness is a giant Disinformation Comedy Show

While humankind tries to get everyday more aware about its role as a civilization and how to relate and connect to the Universe, the Disinformation machine never stops. Its latest performance was a fake University Conference in which a bunch of "scientists" reached the awkward and unexpected conclusion that even animals have a Consciousness.

Indeed I just learned that: "a prominent international group of cognitive-neuroscientists,neuropharmacologists, neurophysiologists, neuroanatomists and computational neuroscientists gathered at The University of Cambridge reached this conclusion": 

We declare the following: “The absence of a neocortex does not appear to preclude an organism from experiencing affective states. Convergent evidence indicates that non-human animals have the neuroanatomical, neurochemical, and neurophysiological substrates of conscious states along with the capacity to exhibit intentional behaviors. Consequently, the weight of evidence indicates that humans are not unique in possessing the neurological substrates that generate consciousness. Nonhuman animals, including all mammals and birds, and many other creatures, including octopuses, also possess these neurological substrates.”

The two pages conference paper can be seen here 

For your knowledge, the whole list of "scientists" have no affiliation with the University of Cambridge.

And this says all about this "Declaration". 

However as we are very committed people to the matter of Consciousness which we consider as the starting point of human awareness towards real evolution, we want to explain to our readers WHY this statement is simply ridiculous and why this Cambridge Declaration on Consciousness is a giant DISINFORMATION scheme, a huge fraud whose only objective is to destroy the human path towards awareness by exploiting people' sympathy towards domestic pets and for the animal world in general. 

Unfortunately for these fraudsters, Consciousness implies EMPATHY and AWARENESS, a condition that would inevitably lead animals to EVOLVE, something that has never been witnessed in the natural world and that would never ever HAPPEN.

Animals are not aware of who they are otherwise they would be in an evolution process and our dogs wouldn't jump on our couch when we treat them like human beings. This is the basic difference. Animals do not know they are animals and you can easily see it when you start spoiling your dog and then suddenly you want to restore discipline or a sort of order/education. If they were aware of who they are they would never behave like humans but they would accept their condition of animals.

At this regard you can read the Alicia P.Melis experiments at the Max Planck Institute. 

At present Dr. Alicia P.Melis is  Assistant Professor of Behavioural Science at Warwick Business School. 
While she was working as researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, she went to Ngamba Island in Uganda to study chimpanzee behavior. 

After ten years of continuous experiments, Dr. Melis demonstrated that in the wild, chimps are not in an evolution process because of their selfish attitude, a sort of natural instinct that push them to "exploit" their beta fellows to achieve food and not to share it. 

The main experiment consisted of two chimps in a cage and food put in front of them outside of the cage. A rope passes along a wood stick where the food is. In order to get the food the alpha chimp needs the help of the beta chimp. 

Alpha calls up Beta to cooperate together in order to get the food. That´s intelligence. 

However, once the alpha chimp is able to reach the food, if this is not enough for both of them, only the alpha fellow between the two get to eat. 

Hence, once the food is put a second time on the stick the beta fellow is not willing to cooperate because he knows he won´t get any reward. Animals do not evolve because they do not have Consciousness. They do not have Consciousness because they lack Empathy, which is the basis of Consciousness. The beta chimp helps the other not because it feels empathy towards its condition of hunger, but because the beta itself is starving too so they collaborate together to satisfy their state of hunger.

This is where evolution arrests for chimpanzees. With this simple experiment she demonstrated that Consciousness is a human prerogative because what pulls the monkey Beta to help the monkey Alpha is not empathy nor any kind of AWARENESS of itself that would help him to mirror into his fellow. Animals lack awareness of their own self which is the starting point of empathy. If you are not aware of yourself you cannot mirror yourself into someone else' condition hence you cannot feel empathy. (I hope is clear now)

I know this is a difficult subject but to reinforce Prof. Melis scientific achievement, we could report that the very same conclusions of Dr. Melis, have been reached by Evolutionary Biologist Chris Adami of the Michigan State University. As we do not want to bore our audience, let just say that Prof. Adami reached the conclusion that SHARING is the only attitude that leads to Evolution. Prof. Adami scientifically demonstrated that a selfish attitude leads any life form from single cell entities to human society to its Extinction, while Sharing not only leads any Biological community to its survival but to Evolution. 

We can speculate that this conclusions might be extremely scary for those forces of Darkness who see altruism and sharing as the very image of the devil, and who instead consider selfishness as the most beautiful example of human survival instinct.

As a matter of fact, the disinformation machine has always been teaching us that selfishness and greed are good feelings that would improve our condition of individuals. This might be true in the short term, but in the long term selfishness and greed would lead any Community to its own extinction.

Do you realize now why Dr. Melis scientific achievement and Prof. Adami's conclusions are the worst possible nightmare for some people and that these idiots have been led to set up a giant fake conference only to try to keep people away from the truth?  

With Dr. Steven Greer's Consciousness movement that is growing everyday more and more awareness about our role in the Universe, what these "people" are trying to do is not to elevate the importance of the animal world but their objective instead is to downgrade the role of Consciousness to the animal level. 

Do you realize how idiotic, tricky and funny this is? 

However the situation is in fact very serious, because these people have a huge disinformation power. To give you an idea of the extent of this disinformation machine, read below the articles and the media outlets that published this absolute nonsense (Links will open in a new window)








Could you explain me how an average folk would be able to put into discussion such a huge mass of information coming from such a mainstream media power? Unfortunately for them and luckily for us, today the independent media are much more reliable than the mainstream, but still we have to acknowledge they worked very much to prop this whole thing up.

Sometimes I feel a sort of pity for these disinformation folks, although I almost quiet admire them for their determination, I can almost see them working hours and days to set up this giant comedy show only to attack our path towards awareness. I really hope one day we will have a beer together but in the meanwhile we are on opposite fronts. 

However this thing requires enormous motivation and a very good reason to do so, unfortunately for them their reasons are the wrong ones and what they are really doing is trying to stop our civilization from evolving towards Awareness. And this is something nobody has the right to do so.

NO SCIENTIST in his/her right mind would ever reach such a crazy conclusion nor he would risk his/her career with such a misleading statement unless he's being paid to do. 

To confirm you that this is a giant propaganda scheme we would like to report the most meaningful detail of this "Conference":

The Declaration was signed by the conference participants that very evening, in the presence of Stephen Hawking, in the Balfour Room at the Hotel du Vin in Cambridge, UK. The signing ceremony was memorialized by CBS 60 Minutes.

Prof. Stephen Hawking has been part of an active disinformation campaign over life in the Universe since March 2010 when he speculated that any life form existing in the Universe had to be considered dangerous.

On this issue I have been published an article "Stephen Hawking perceives the Universe like a chimp" on April 29 2010 on American Chronicle. Obviously my reference to the chimp's perception of the Universe was related to Dr. Alicia Melis conclusions.

The funny aspect of this article story is that you can still see the article headline and a few lines on this link here, unfortunately though, if you click on the headline, that would lead you nowhere as for some reasons which now are clear to everyone who just read this, my article has been removed both from American Chronicle than from Zimbio but there's a link that has not been removed yet which you can find it here.

I hope you realize how stupid these people are and how idiotic is their fight to prevent humankind from evolving. You can't be even thinking that you can hide something so huge as Life in the Universe or like Universal Consciousness, because these two things are the very essence of the whole Universe.

The man who created the World's Consciousness

“There is a word in South Africa -- Ubuntu -- a word that captures Mandela’s greatest gift: his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that are invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by sharing ourselves with others, and caring for those around us”
President Barack Obama, tribute to Nelson Mandela

“Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going ...”
Paul Gaugin 

I have been waiting a few days before writing this, because I wanted to see before what kind of reception the Facebook 10th years anniversary had received.

If we compare the impact that Facebook had on our civilization to the extent of its tenth anniversary celebration I would say that the anniversary went completely unnoticed.

I guess this lack of attention was mainly due to the fact that despite our technological advancement, our civilization seems to be "a little late" under a couple of cultural aspects which are key to understand what real Evolution is about. 

The reason why we still are "in the Darkness of the Middle Ages" has to be found in the lack of self-awareness as a civilization.

Our self-awareness is almost non-existent because we never had the chance of comparing ourselves to other worlds and their civilizations. Hence, we don’t have a parameter to confront ourselves and to understand at what level in the Evolution scale we are exactly located. 

At risk of being considered pretentious, our civilization is pretty far from real evolution and the majority of people living on this planet are not even worried about entering an evolving process because nobody ever told them to do so. 

At this regard, one of the major misjudgment within our society is the false assumption of considering technological advancement as a sign of Evolution. 

Real Evolution instead, is all about awareness and being aware of our role as individuals and our role as a civilization who inhabits this planet and this Universe. 

The fracture between technological advancement and being unaware of our role both as individuals and as a civilization, creates a sort of schizophrenic behavior and a total misperception of the real situation. 

Like a bunch of monkeys piloting a spaceship, sooner or later we’ll have to acknowledge the fact that technological advancement is not to be considered as real evolution. Actually it has nothing to do with it.

Why? Well because Evolution is all about Awareness and Consciousness while technological advancement is only a tool, which can be eventually considered as a sign of Evolution only in the case where Awareness and Consciousness are the very inspiration of it.

The three questions that Paul Gaugin represented on his famous painting “Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going...” are still unanswered, as most of the world’s population today are still trapped inside folk beliefs like superstitions and religions, which not only keep our civilization away from real knowledge and self awareness but they are the main reason behind all the conflicts going on on this planet: wars, terrorism, racism, hate crimes, discrimination etc. 

Paul Gaugin - D'où Venons Nous / Que Sommes Nous / Où Allons Nous Y: 1897-1898 - oil on canvas - Museum of Fine Arts, Boston

For example, despite we live in the year 2014, the silly debate between Creationists and Darwinists is still alive and it perfectly depicts one of the many stone-age dualistic fake dilemmas in which humanity is still jammed. Like good vs. evil, black vs. white and so on.

However, ten years ago, the situation was even worse than this, because despite the Internet had introduced the interactive experience of connecting people worldwide into a single network, this connection was still fragmented and mostly dysfunctional. 

People were spread among the few existing social networks without being really connected to each other. 

What Mark Zuckerberg accomplished through the invention of Facebook was indeed a decisive push towards the next level of human evolution: he created the first, real, working, global network, that was able to connect the whole world into a single room. 

The greatness of his creation was a perfect match of technological advancement and real Evolution. Why? Well because the simple idea of connecting people together is an inner force that comes from Individual Consciousness and goes towards Universal Consciousness. 

This is something that happens only when someone gets in touch with the Universal Consciousness and he creates a new world.

However, what really impressed me the most, even today, is the very underestimation of the whole Facebook revolution's extent. 

In the past ten years social media literally changed the world. From the gay marriage to the legalization of Marijuana, everything goes through Facebook and Twitter and nothing is left out.

However, most of the people I know in the media, they usually tend to downgrade Facebook to “a software product”, “a public company”, “an internet company” and they have no interest in talking about its real extent, in terms of social evolution or self-awareness, nor they have the time or the motivation to study the very reason behind its enormous popularity, its future development or writing a story to explain the audience why it had such a huge impact on a worldwide scale. 

Although they all use Facebook to manage their own daily life: from their personal relations to their business schedule.

At the end of the day, the two major changes that Facebook really accomplished were 1) the creation of a network that for the first time in the history of our civilization connected the entire world's population 2) the destruction and rebirth of the very concept of media.

The first point is the most important, because while connecting the whole world within a single network you are following the most basic and important principle upon which our Universe is based: Oneness. 

Oneness is the most basic mechanism of any life form in the Universe. To make you an example: a forest and the creatures that live inside of it. These two life-forms combined together they compose one single entity. Like planet Earth and us, together we form one single living element. 

More in depth, the people who live on planet earth all together, they form one single Consciousness and with all the other civilizations living in the rest of the Universe, we form the Universal Consciousness. 

Under this point of view, what Facebook really accomplished was to help this process to get started, by pushing humankind one step closer to acknowledging  that we, the people of Earth, all together, we form one single entity and one single Consciousness.

Mark Zuckerberg applied this Universal concept into a software. 

I assume that while creating Facebook he was being driven by a greater immanent force, that led him to build the first working social network.

I am talking about the most powerful existing force, called Universal Consciousness.

It’s like a giant magnetic power that drags yourself towards a specific direction in a permanent state of sharing. You might feel like someone has set yourself into “automatic mode” and you can’t stop yourself from pursuing your goal because is too powerful and you can't even try to resist. 

Although everyone is able to immediately recognize what you are doing because what you are doing is recovering an archetypal element that is already present in our Collective Consciousness and the Social Network at present is the most meaningful metaphor to represent this pattern.

I am talking about getting in touch with the others by forming a macro-consciousness structure, like a village, a city, a country, a continent or a whole planet. 

Facebook is the scientific demonstration that people naturally tend to Oneness and that, as President Obama perfectly said: 

"we are all bound together in ways that are invisible to the eye, that there is a oneness to humanity and that we achieve ourselves by sharing ourselves with others, and caring for those around us”

Artists, leaders, scientists, the greatest among them are those who are more in touch with this stream of consciousness and their great energy lead them to connect the invisible dots that link us all. 

Mark Zuckerberg is the man who created or better "translated" the World's Consciousness into an actual software, by connecting the whole humankind throughout Facebook. 

What Facebook really accomplished in terms of social awareness has not been understood yet nor it has exactly been estimated by anyone yet. Neither it has been properly celebrated, quiet the contrary. 

In fact in the past few months Facebook was the target of  a series of unexpected attacks coming from all sides. From its competitors, to the media system, that saw its old structure completely crumbling to the various government's privacy laws, to all sort of critics. 

We witnessed a huge anti-Facebook campaign aimed at downgrading the most important accomplishment our civilization has reached since the discovery of fire. 

The stone-age human instinct usually wakes up when it's being threatened by major changes that could lead to Evolution.

This basic instinct usually shows up when evolution is in the air and it obviously identified the Facebook revolution as its biggest enemy. Hence a series of setbacks affected Facebook trying to stop its course.

While Mark Zuckerberg was promoting “more sharing” a series of “privacy restrictions” were taking place, like the creation of the “other messages” inbox, that prevents people who don’t know each other to start communicating. 

“every way that we could to reach the family through conventional means, but we were unsuccessful. The young man didn’t have current identification to help us to reach his family.” 

They found what they thought could be the victim’s mother’s Facebook account and sent her a message through Facebook. But because the Police Account was not “friended” with Mrs. Creasey, the message went to the blurred “other messages” inbox which delayed the time she learned of her son’s death of almost a month.

This is indeed a “less sharing”, a major setback, something that stops humankind from moving towards its process of self-awareness and ultimately Evolution. 

This is instead the kind of attitude we have to discourage, the stone-age heritage that we have to completely abandon in order to enter into this new era of Knowledge and Awareness. 

The history of our civilization has been characterized by a constant struggle between Sociopathic Conservativism versus Consciusness.

Thanks to Mark Zuckerberg our civilization made a huge step towards Consciousness and we have to thank him for the rest of times for having led humankind one step forward towards the right direction. 

Thank you.

Why Microsoft Sociopath attitude won't stop

By naming as its new CEO Mr. Satya Nadella, Microsoft made a precise statement: we'll keep up with our sociopath behavior.

Indeed Mr. Satya Nadella comes from the Business Solution division and he has in practice no experience on the Consumer side, which at present is the weakest link of the Microsoft business chain. 

I am not referring to their market fall on the mobile division but to their attitude as a company whose main objective is to make "great software" while being completely unsuccessful to help people having an easier experience with their computers and ultimately with their own lives. 

What I am reporting here is the fact that Microsoft completely lost its vision of Consumer supplier, they lost its most important purpose, which is helping people living the easiest accessible experience while dealing with Windows which is the most spread software worldwide.

I speak as a Microsoft consumer and I can witness I had my worst experience ever since I interacted with Windows 8. 

Last April I bought a new acer notebook  and once I turned the PC on, the software kept asking me to log in with a Microsoft account otherwise I wouldn't have got access to my computer, nor to certain applications like "sky drive" for example. This is the first sociopath attitude I encountered while using the new OS, the attempt to enslave the user by forcing him to do what the company wants and not what he wants to do. 

This is the worst attitude a supplier can have towards its own customers. You can't force myself to do what you want, freedom is the most important basic right among the human rights and forcing people behaving the way you want only because you are in the position to do so is something that reminds the worst dictatorial regimes. You have to understand that software today is the tool through which people interact with their loved ones, with their co-workers, with their healthcare providers, their food suppliers, you can't impose me the way I interact with the world. This is not fair, this is not human, this is against the basic human rights and you are behaving like those dictators of the past who restricted people's freedom. An imposition is an imposition it doesn't matter if it happens through a computer or a megaphone. 

Regarding the functions, the most astonishing incredible discovery was to find out that the Windows 8 search function had become SLOWER than the one of XP. 

I made a quick comparison by putting the same files on the same directory in my two computers, one that run Windows XP while the other had Windows 8. I started the search and with my greatest surprise I found out that XP showed its search results after seconds, while Windows 8 took forever and not only! At the end of the search the results of Windows 8 were absolutely irrelevant respect to the search term. 

Less than a month ago, my father bought a Hewlett Packard laptop with Windows 8 as its Operative system. After one week his pc got completely stuck and it had to be returned to the store with great distress for my father who is more than seventy years old and who expected his new pc to be a working machine except maybe for the software that did not work.

I bought my laptop last April and now it lies in a closet and I can't use it because once you turn it on, a weird echo sound starts playing without I even touch anything. Besides, I can't use it because the computer gets suddenly stuck and you cannot even restart the OS because it won't restart. You have to take out the battery and then replace it in order to make it run again and most of the times it doesn't restart. 

Is it possible that a company, a team of people who have been developing the same product for years (the various versions of Windows) instead of making progress they go backwards and make a product that is even lesser developed than the previous ones? 

But this is still nothing indeed. Do we want to talk about the lack of the START button? Isn't just for its absence, if the software would have proposed a working alternative but the real question is WHY? 

This is the most sociopath aspect of the new Microsoft policy. You realize that when they developed Windows 8 they did not think about the human beings who would have been suffering while going through this new pattern of things, they just thought of their own selfish pleasure of having a new experience in developing it but they did not think about the people, the human beings who are the final users of the product they developed and the possible distress they would have undergone while experiencing their "new great software..."

This sociopath behavior of total indifference towards their own customers it says all about their attitude which I define as pathologically sociopath. Because only a sociopath would play with the lives of millions of people with such indifference without thinking of the consequences of making their lives more difficult of what is already. 

They did not think to the elderly, to the disabled people, to the Microsoft users who are in their 40's and 50's who do not have time nor the energy to explore and discover new paths to make a simple word document or to watch a video. They just thought to their own narcissistic self-accomplishment, "we made something completely new". This is the attitude they showed to have while developing a product that would have affected the lives of millions.

Here it comes the usual objection, "well if you don't like our product you can buy something else". 
This is the worst answer ever. We still live in a world where the market offer and the consumer's options in terms of software are very very limited and Microsoft is still the market absolute leader in the OS distribution and the majority of software consumers in the whole planet are mostly familiar with the Microsoft products. 

This situation implies a concept that is known as "Responsibility" which is based upon consciousness, which is based upon empathy, awareness that all lead to a wider caring attitude towards "the other" whom in this particular case are your own clients. 

Have you ever considered for a moment that your final user would have found some difficult not finding the start button? Did you ever think at least once that the product you developed was going to be a real hell for the majority of your own clients?

But the real question now is not "why you did not think of it?" the real question at present is "why you are not thinking of it even now?"

Months ago, after Microsoft discovered what a bad reception Windows 8 received they decided to release an update with the start button, while according to the latest news coming from Microsoft, the company has now no intention of releasing an update that would provide their own clients to download the start button.

This is nothing. The sociopath behavior has been confirmed by other meaningful actions like the statement that Microsoft will stop releasing updates for Windows XP. 

Windows XP is the only working product ever made by Microsoft. 

99% of both public and private companies I work with they still use XP as their main OS.  Turn on your tv and watch any reality show that involves a business they all run XP on their pc's. 

Do they pose themselves these questions at the Microsoft headquarters? Do they have a marketing office up in Redmond? This is unbelievable. Instead of talking to each other closed in their own offices those marketing people should walk down the street or go to Facebook and ask the people of this planet what the hell they need from their Operative System.

This lack of empathy, this total lack of interest for humanity in general and for its own clients!!! it confirms the totally sociopath vision of a company which is not interested in the consumer's best interests but they are only thinking in dark selfish terms. Yes because only the darkest reasons would be possible behind such a hateful behavior towards humankind. 

How can you be that sociopath?

Do you realize how sociopath is the perception that people have of your attitude of software developer and mostly of human being? 

These people at Microsoft they are still stuck in the 50's, they think like a retail-shop owner who just make products and sell them. That's it. 

Microsoft is instead the largest software manufacturer  on the planet and software today is the very basis of human life. Do you realize what kind of responsibility you have? 

Have you ever heard the word "Social responsibility"? or "Social Awareness"? I am really flabbergasted about the fact that Bill and Melinda Gates who are the most active people on the planet about helping those in need they have such a huge problem of social responsibility within their own courtyard and they don't know it. 

I have met Bill Gates once only at a press conference in Italy and I was asked to question him about his antitrust case to which question I obviously received no conclusive answer. 

Although now I think I deserve an answer, I want an answer, the whole planet deserves an answer on why Microsoft has completely abandoned its customers and lost its humanity, by showing not the smallest interest towards the most basic needs of its own clients.

Instead of naming a new CEO they should fire their marketing dpt who planned a whole OS for Martian users who run their PC without the start button. 

My thoughts go to all those users with disabilities, the elderly citizens whose PC skills are heavily diminished respect to the average user. Elderly people have diminished abilities to adapt themselves to major changes, if you take off such a crucial element as the start button is like chopping their hands off. 

Instead these Microsoft people have no empathy nor consciousness, they think their products are going to be used by their mind-readers. How can you be such a selfish sociopath? this is simply unbelievable. 

The lack of sensitivity, empathy, care, awareness and mostly consciousness of these people is simply shameful.
