Any shareholders who plan to attend the annual meeting, please make sure you raise a stink about this issue at the meeting. Make your voice heard. Let your feelings about this matter be known. Don't feel helpless or act like a victim. Change always starts small. Take charge, you are an owner and have a direct stake in how this company is run. Even if it is not immediately apparent, your protests will make a difference.
I have already written to IR expressing my disgust.
