I'm still at a loss as to why everyone is shielding a company that, if nothing
else, has treated a customer so poorly that both sides have resorted to lawyers
to resolve the issue. I understand the original poster's hesitation to name the
company (ongoing litigation, etc), but why are other folks indulging in
cloak-and-dagger innuendo?

If the company being discussed is Bio-Rad, it makes me think twice about
EVER ordering ANY equipment from them again, and I will certainly explain
the reason to their sales rep. If we as scientists have any sense of community,
I would think there are many who would also cease doing business with Bio-Rad
for the same reason.
And by the way, I never claimed to BE a rocket scientist ;-}
