There is no shame in some executives.

Ansell executives are today lambasting China, not over the hoarding of masks or equipment, but the price hikes!

These are the same executives that closed local production facilities, made hundreds redundant, all in an effort to reduce unit costs, massively increase margins and then accept a fat bonus!

The irony that Ansell are now crying about China now doing exactly what Ansell did, gouging!

If Scomo wants to resolve this issue forever more, he should mandate that if a local manufacturer exists the government must buy something off them, quotas, just like China, just like the USA, just like the EU.

But I doubt that will happen as it's against the Liberal ideology of small government, yet it's free trade that got us into this situation!

Granted I'm not a mod, but in answer to question 2, the gibberish English is a real giveaway.  Even those for whom English is a second language would never type nonsensical sentences like that. It could be a real person having fun and impersonating a bot, but anyone dimwitted enough to do that, especially as a first post, should be banned anyway.

Yep. And oddball names are also a bit of a giveaway.

A couple of questions for the admins
1. Why would a bot be registered on the forum?
2. How was it determined that it was a bot?
