    when you use an independent garage is it considered anti-Ford or anti-Toyota? when you split your business between United and Virgin is it considered anti-United.

    Just because SAP calls itself enterprise wide, does not mean customers have to buy everything from it or its partners.

    You can call it anti-SAP but is it not about customer choice?

    If the garage is a temporary one set up outside a Ford plant and you see flyers all around about not going to your Ford dealer for maintenance, rather cheap 3rd parties, in fact buy non-Ford parts cause orginal ones are crap and expensive… and for your next purchase or when your lease is up buy Toyota instead, well then it’s “anti-Ford”.

    Not that there’s anything wrong with being “anti-Ford”. Competition is fair, so is guerilla marketing – just no point in trying to whitewash it.

    As Zoli says, competition is great, but why whitewash what seems obvious?
