IDine treated me like dirt

I think I just set some kind of record. I may be the ONLY person to ever be kicked out of the iDine program. They just sent me a letter saying so. It is over a page long, so I can't go into all the *** it says, but here are some highlights: It is unfortunate that the same level of dining rewards cannot be supported today that you received when you joined in... [a century ago -- they think it was 1998, but it was way before that under other names before they inherited or bought their business from TransMedia, DiningAlaCard, RewardsNet or whoever it was] We recognize that our structure doesn't appeal to everyone... We are electing to terminate your iDine membership... [because] Item 17... (iv) you engage in behavior we deem to be abusive to us... The "behavior" they refer to are things I said about iDine in restaurant reviews, which the restaurants and possibly customers may be able to see. In the review questionaires, they clearly want me to rate their promotions or program as a reason for my patronizing participating restaurants. But if they don't like what I might say, then why did they ask me? Is iDine really that chicken-$#!T, or what? They set minimum purchase requirements, they set deadlines, they make you review the same restaurants over and over again, and if you don't jump through ALL of these hoops, you're disqualified and kicked to the curb. #U@< them!
