Fax isn't dead, it's just extremely uncool, unhip, un-whatever. Anyone
dealing with businesses outside of the high-tech bubble, businesses
overseas, signed documents or people in the security sphere is probably
going to have some sort of fax capability independent of having an
actual fax machine.
Being able to accept faxes is no worse than being able to accept email,
physical mail, or phone calls. If that's how my customer/client prefers
to communicate with me, so be it. Not everyone has a
scanner/copier/printer in their office that lets them print out a PDF,
mark it up or sign it, then scan it and send it back as email. It's
especially true once you get outside of design/high-tech space.
And from the point of view of someone who hires vendors occasionally,
I'm happy to take my business else where if you can't support my
preferred means of communication.
