"users" is the illegal drug market and well we all know how well they
are treated by their pushers. I thought that consumer gave them some
respect over being a slab of meat who I pushed whatever I wanted onto

I try to use "audience" or something like that, but user is generally
understood to be a neutral term for software/hardware.
