Think the "virus" might be applied to the data base of bad docs, Ms.Abrams?The "L.A. Times" reported that starting in 2002 Purdue's sales repswere trained to report "red flags" in doctors' offices such as youngpatients, long lines, people nodding off in waiting rooms and frequentcash transactions. Purdue attorneys review their reports and if adoctor's practice is deemed too risky, the company bars salesrepresentatives from marketing to the physicians. The suspect doctorsare removed from the company's numbered sales territories andassigned to the database, known as "Region Zero." If this data basedoes still exists at Purdue Pharma and hasn't been destroyed by theirpatented "worm" it might be better called "Region Death" rather than"Region Zero."Also, Ms. Abrams you may find it interesting that not only was thelate Howard Udell general counsel at Purdue Pharma, but he was alsoan "inventor." Udell pleaded guilty to misleading physicians andpatients about the dangers of OxyContin. So when Purdue Pharma isasked to produce the "bad doc data base" will they reply "Wish wecould have complied, but you see we have this patent -- and all thatinformation was destroyed by a virus. Did we do something wrong --again?"Here is the patent information with Purdue Pharma's General Counsel,Howard Udell's name on it. Inventors:Udell, Howard R. (US)Baker, Stuart D. (US)Kappel, Cary S.
