Actually they are like any animal as it attempts to survive
in a competitive marketplace and demonstrated rather
clearly they have over 300 online operators processing
submissions 24/7 with over 300,000 applications a month.

I not here to argue the semantics or right or wrong. I simply
pointed out an observation of mine and stated it. I understand
the problems and the frustrations.

The problems now will multiply. soon when more people get into
the game and the expense will go up with the added problems.

I think for the most part people do not now realize the disruptions
to come from companies that do not have the experience or i
infrastructure. I wish there were any easy solution.

I wish computers and networks didn't break and that
software wasn't broke ware when came out the door,
but then if it were a perfect world they wouldn't need
us to fix the problem and yes I am being sarcastic, just
because I can be.
