That may well be true, but trying to get after the company to honor
its request seems dubious, at best. If they are dishonest they won't
sell to you--why should they? It would be easier for them to just
ignore you and go on.
It seems to me the best strategy would be to put this on a web page and
let others know about incidents you can document, and then point IBM
towards this. I'm sure IBM wouldn't like knowing that anyone dealing
their products would do this.
