    This happened to my sister too. She cancelled one plan and requested a refund for the other plan. But, for the cancelled plan, she was charged the full amount.

      Reality..., 20 Jun 2024You might be onto something there. I'm not going to me... moreI think being a CEO for a big tech company unfortunately means that you kinda have to be a terrible person because you’re constantly being pressured by shareholders to keep growing the company no matter what size it is, even if that growth is unsustainable or dangerous. And if you don’t do that, then you’ll be fired and replaced by someone who can.

          Right about time. Payback for their greedy actions. Remember when was the last non-prescription version of CS collection? 12 years ago.

The only reason adobe pretends to care about dei is because it takes people’s mind off of the horrible things they do as a company like stealing art from artists to train their ai models that need a huge amount of natural resources to run.

              There's something common about Adobe, Microsoft, Google, etc. that's causing these companies' decision making process to swirl around the drain in dogwater in these past few years that I just cannot put my finger on. It must have something to do with the bad decisions and the people who are making them...some common denominator among their CEO guys or whatever...but I am just not able to draw a proper conclusion due to a mindblock.

              Oh well, will you just look at the time! It's already daybreak here, so good morning Sir.

                                Well, they may have done it all within laws, but it's a dirty game to get a money. They may get opaque response with people getting off the platform instead.
                                Well, they did earn some pocket money till now lol.

By pirating Adobe, you're maintaining their existence as de facto editing software, and such increasing their userbase and justifying their outrageous behavior. The only solution here is to stop using Adobe, pirated or not.

                                  Do you know why Microsoft close their eyes when students pirated their software? Because they know by allowing them, their skills got locked into Microsoft software, and when they are in the workforce, they will only be able to use Microsoft software. The same thing with Adobe.

As long as you keep using their products, even pirated, you're still supporting them as de facto software. The best thing to fight them is to simply not using their products

                                        Frankly, I hope many will cancel and stop using their product.
                                        THERE IS alternatives nowadays. Good one.
                                        That wasn't the case 10 years ago.
                                        So jump and quit Adobe, remember Flash, it was from them haha 😅 (jk)
