Re: The elephant in the room…

Sorry for the downvote but your comment still assumes no regulations are needed because customers can "just switch" is wrong. While less an immediate risk, customers finding out products are life threatening or exploitative usually happens *after* the fact. Thus competition alone cannot be guaranteed to prevent all harm.

The last couple of years has shown control and power over the net could cause harm, let alone exploitation of consumers.
