The thing I don't understand...

The thing I don't understand is this: why would anyone do something if they know it's going to come back to haunt them? If all these allegations are true (against PA), you would think that the leadership of PA would've realized that, sooner or later, they were going to be called out. I don't care how iron-clad of a contract they have. I don't care if they never did anything "illegal." The fact of the matter is, once they get enough bad press, they'll never do business again.

What if PA realizes/realized this? What if they did change their ways? What if they made these catalogs, paid their authors properly, didn't intimidate, didn't misrepresent themselves or falsely advertise? The damage is already done. Anyone who goes into this business thinking, "let's make all the money we can right now," is going to learn that in a few short years, they'll be making SQUAT.

It's just an indication of how much people have to live for the now...how impatient they can be to have everything they want handed to them NOW. So few think of the future. That's what makes this whole scenario really sad.
