Description of Problem:
Went to sales link on web site to contact them.  After experience, decided not to.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:

Web page allows only 200 characters for question on interactive form.  As soon
as I saw this I knew I was again running into the sickness of the times...too
little time, too complicated, too little resources, or just a bum at the other end.

Sure enough, for whatever black box reasons, the "submit" failed.  I counted
chars in field and was more than 200, but no warning was ever given after submit.

Nothing significant can be said in 200 chars, please try it if you don't believe
me.  I think you will be surprised if you aren't completely callused.

Comment about 200 char limit.  I have seen it several places in the last 6
months and have gotten most of the Perps to change it.  The sickest example was
on line police report for the San Jose Police department...which BTW I later
learned are never looked at, just filed.

Gee!  Isn't it wonderful that Politicians and Governments are learning from
Business types how to get things done???!!!
