It is unethical, because its none of your business. It isn't anyone else's
business either.  But that's the second time you've written those words in
the past year. Why you would delight in someone else's failure is....open
to interpretation.

Well, Mr. Had may have done alright by losing Ameritron after all.  If he
hadn't he may not have gone on to start Cary Audio.  Now he's selling tube
amps to audiophiles for $6000 to $35,000 a pop instead of dealing with
skin-flint radio amateurs who expect $6000 amps for an $800 price tag.
