The main reason I could think of is to take advantage of their efforts
towards promotion to actually promote the opposite viewpoint. Other
than the bonus of a few more hearts and minds won over by "our" cleverness, you are exactly correct. And as always, all IMHO only...

There is something of an activist nature to our plight though, and
counting coup on only faceless organizations like ZONY or MICROSLOB may
overlook the fact that these power structures are arrayed against "us" by actual people, many of whom think they are doing the right thing.
Occasionally fighting a little war with some disparate viewpoints with
faces may be a good thing.

Enough, I'm starting to sound like Che... welcome to rumori.

Anyone collage any Star Wars material in honor of the big flop?
