Okay, I wasted my time going to the site with the intention of downloading
the demo, trying it out, and considering purchasing it "at a much more
reasonable price". Whoa, Betsy Alberty did not mention that the downloadable
demo is $298, just so you can see if you wish to purchase the $998 software

I feel that this was deceptive, and just the kind of thing that gets
everybody so riled up about business interaction on bionet. 

No sale!
