Bait and Switch

I am peeved this morning.  Specifically, with vendors who make in-roads in launching their products by offering free educator accounts, and then once they hit the big time, revoke or add hurdles to educators. As someone who works hard to promote web-based tools to teachers this sort of bait and switch is very frustrating. To add salt to the wound, I emailed one of our really popular web app platforms to ask about purchasing an educational site license and was told "we are reassessing our educational program." (see below.)  Man, this burns me.
