But, the attentiveness to potential customer's needs may well
be represented by their attention to the quality of their website.

I have often felt that someone who cares so little or needs such

probably demonstrating the care they would put in to their product
or service.    Anyway, it would make me ask more questions - including
"why do you dis your customers in your web site".
