Designers speak out on Adobe price controversy

What do CC users think about paying different rates depending on how they accessed Adobe's site?

Yesterday we reported that Adobe is openly offering different prices for its Creative Cloud subscription services depending what browser/device they're using. (The fix seems to be to flush your cookies or use private browsing, but that's little comfort for anyone who's already paid a higher price for their subscription).

As expected, the reaction from the designer community has been swift and damning, and the controversy has opened up a huge can of worms around the subject of Adobe's pricing model. Here we've picked a selection of tweets, which offer a fascinating insight into the different perspectives on the controversy...
