Not wrong, but also not helpful in any way. To themselves or anyone else. But don't blame SU for that.

Why not post it in a public forum? It affects customers as well, many are very likely loosing their demo over this new IDA. For some, it may be the only demo in their little town, for others, it may not be the case, but for all it's a sad thing.

Hiding behind a wall, once a proclamation has been made that affects many who are people first, customers or demonstrators second, doesn't bode well for any company. As far as revising the IDA after the fact, sure it was the right thing to do, but it should have been visualized before the initial announcement that many would feel that their rights, whether you (the general you) believe that to be the case or not, were being trampled on.

Again, once all is said and done, and everyone's decisions have been made, I hope that everyone can get back to the business of being creative without having these huge walls being up. It really has created an us vs. them mentality that is so sad.
