I have seen a case more than once wherein someone posts a response to a question/product based on memory or supposition, and which info is fundamentally incorrect.  If one gives advice about a product it would be best either:

a) to actually own the item, or have one in hand, or have experience with one

b) preface the advice with a caveat about going, by memory.....as in "if memory serves me correctly...."

That way those with questions will not be steered wrong.  Of course, I suppose no one should take any internet forum info as gospel....unless of course...ahem, He says so!

Dinsdale!..oh Dinsdale!

(Most importantly, no one should start with the Monty Python stuff...that is sooooo 'yesterday'. My bad....[ohhh that is dated too].)
