Pointless spam.  You provided no real useful information other than a
rant from your problems with quality control.  You should look at the
part about spam since this message along with your message are both
considered spam by all means since they are OT.  Maybe next time instead
of making yourself look like an ass, you go ahead and reply to him
directly, and not all of us.  So you don't waste my 1KB with your
useless information.
