How about deleting scenes for renters? Is that smart? If you want to know how it ends, buy it. Does that make sense?
My point is some people think stripping the HD audio is already going too far.
Nothing wrong with renting, nothing wrong with buying.
But the idea, to take the extra time, effort and expense to strip out an HD audio track in order to diminish the rental experience, is twisted. Conceived by a sick, bloated industry. It shows they have utter contempt for the consumer. (aka, you.) They dont deserve your praise for employing that type of business model.
Of course, you are entitled to your opinion. Obviously, I strongly disagree.
