Wow, that's a great example, thanks for picking up on that and sharing it.
I think this crosses over from "harming the user experience" to "dishonest
quasi-legal business practice". Which I suppose is not entirely surprising
for WalMart. One obvious solution for the IA is to quit, but that's pretty
extreme and not many people have that kind of option.
I guess if you work for WalMart, you should be prepared to spend a lot of
time in this kind of ethical gray area.
