Perhaps you find it difficult to be honest. I, sir, do not. I also do not
recommend washing machines. I reserve my recommendations to my professional
expertise. If you are unable to separate yourself from greed and bias, I
suggest you find another line of work. The vast majority of audiologists
with whom I associate would find it extremely offensive to be compared to
appliance salesmen, or to those who find ways to convince their patients to
buy something they do not need.
