Don't pretend that these are not opposite statements. I would expect that most of us would favor not being sold incompatible components. I'll step away from this debate about basic use of language. Golly, I don't need no wrong parts!...or is it wrong parts that I don't need!
So if we replace the word "unless" with it's definition...


Unless - except under the circumstances that; except on the condition that




they won't try to sell you something except under the circumstances that the components you have are incompatible

they won't try to sell you something except on the condition that the components you have are incompatible

I think it works either way...

Or looked at another way if the stuff you had WAS compatible they would not try and sell you more stuff.

"If" components I already owned and bought were "incompatible" I would hope they would try and sell me the right stuff so I could get my system going...
