A corporation is basically just a group of people, and most people do have sentiments, morale, morals, and regrets. The fact that so many people like to say otherwise is simply an acknowledgment that the corporation's leadership doesn't appear to show outward signs of the foregoing. That line of thinking is a convention that absolves that leadership of any such things, particularly when such things interfere with income. Lest I sound too harshly judgmental, I hasten to point out that a lack of income does tend to cause a corporation to discorporate (to borrow and misuse a term).

"I need advice from the community. The problem is seen here:
It appears that McAfee Anti-Virus uses SQLite internally, and it leaves lots of files in C:/TEMP that contain SQLite in their names. This annoys many windows users. They get on Google and search around for "sqlite" and find me. Then they send me private email or call me at my office or on my cellphone to complain. Many refuse to believe that I have nothing to do with the problem and I am accused of spreading a virus or malware.
My efforts to contact Mcafee about this problem have been unfruitful.
Does anybody have an suggestions on how I might deal with this? Does anybody know how I can get in touch with an engineer at Mcafee so that we can at least change the names of the files in future releases?"
