Features vs Quality

I just read John Clingan's post on Features over Quality.

At a previous employer (left nameless to protect the guilty..), I had realized that I wanted out and gave notice just as it was announced that the company was being taken over by a competitor. During the customary two week notice period, some folks from the new management came through, and, at an all-hands meeting for the site, emphasized that feature count, not quality, was what caused "us" to make sales.. and that we therefore shouldn't put any effort into fixing customer-experienced bugs lest it get in the way of adding new features to the product.

Gah. Were I not already on the way out, I would have given notice shortly after the meeting. Instead, I quietly got up and left the room in the middle of the meeting.
