    Ilford also gives away samples. I once received a nice stack of D100 120's
    from them.

    They can't help you because the essence of marketing is choosing your
    customers. Kodak quite correctly chooses its customers based on their
    profitability, which implies a certain minimum volume of business. The kind
    of customer you are (and many of us are) represents a very small fraction of
    what it takes to keep a factory operating.

  3. Most of us rather obviously don't care about *your* opinions of Kodak. Go
    ahead and have a conversation with yourself if it'll make you feel better.

    The true reason they can't help scarpitti is that he can't be help.
