Default Boycott Monster Cable!!!!

BOYCOTT MONSTER CABLE!!!!

Not only are Monster Brand cables a rip off according to luminaries like engadget.com, but the Monster company engages in trivial, bullying litigation that proves "if you don't have strong value then have stronger marketing."

http://www.engadget.com/2008/03/03/a...ter-cable-and/

I have never and never would use Monster cable but mainly because of their BS campaign on unsuspecting uninformed customers!

Litigiously attacked little companies who have the word “monster” in their name, using the cynical logic that they can bully little guys out of their namesakes because they are bigger, don’t care about right and wrong but only believe in “marketing” concept which add no value and drive up costs for everyone.

Check out the story of how Monster sued a family run mini golf company because they have the word “monster” in their name.

THIS REALLY STINKS!!!!

Monster is suing anyone with the word "Monster" in their name:

BOYCOTT MONSTER CABLE!!!!

THEIR PRODUCTS ARE NOT EVEN CLOSE TO BEING WORTH WHAT THEY COST ANYWAY!!!!

There are dozens of examples - I've yet to find an unbiased example of Monster performing better - forget about being a better value!

BOYCOTT MONSTER CABLE UNTIL THEY PUBLICLY DISAVOW THIS MARKETING / LITIGATION PLOY!!!!
