    not old news at all. It is News that more of us should be aware of. I saw that grumpy made a comment about this but I was too busy to follow up on this. So I am really glad you posted this.

    I am sadden to see any company do this with any product. Listing specs that cover a gamut then saying well it falls into that range is not cool at all.

    Sounds like the old LAPD. "Well he was dark but kind of light skinned, 4-6.10ft bald afro braids light to heavy weight maybe 120-230lbs 15-50 years old with some clothes on. Hey you over there! You match the description of a robbery suspect!"
