You make a wild assumption here.  Two in fact.  Why would you assume she is an 
agent based upon her words?  And why would you say such a wild thing as " 
are probably taking advantage..."?  Agents serve a good purpose and work hard 
for their money.  I use agents regularly and they are a boon to me.  There are 
a whole lot of client problems that just disappear when an agent is involved.

You allow anyone to instill thoughts in you?  Why?

Promoting our business and ourselves is one thing, using our employer's time 
and pay to damage the employer and then leaving and taking customers with us is 
just plain unethical.  Besides it isn't very effective.
