What really surprises me about this whole discussion is that rather than LISTENING to what unhappy customers are saying the Demo's are spending their time defending their businesses. You would think that they would listen and try to learn why customers are unhappy.
I think part of the unhappiness comes from the fact that we are all independent demonstrators and choose to run our businesses differently. I have seen many posts from folks who for whatever reason change demonstrators, and are upset that the new person doesn't do things the way their other demo did. Some demos give away lots of freebies and don't charge their customers for shipping, while many others can't afford to do that. Then the customer comes on here and vents about it, and five different SCS members tell them they need to drop this demo and find a new one, stat. How do you think that makes the demos who can't afford to buy and hand out six cases of catalogs or give away half their commission feel?

As a brand-new stamper, I did know that local craft stores offered many of the same products that were in the SU! catalog. Did it make me think any less of my demo for trying to sell me stuff from the company that she represented? Not at all, and I'd never insult her by calling her actions amoral or unethical.
