I know very few people who are more interested in mind-numbing technical details than I (witnessed by the fact that I usually read every single word of every single message posted to this list)... But still, I can sympathize with a manufacturer who attempts to make a believable case for a hypothetical improvement while omitting the testing details. It seems like it would almost be essential for the manufacturer to do so. If research details remain proprietary, it would prevent a competitor from using that research as stepping-off point, wouldn't you think? Bob Hovey Columbus, GA

i agree. i have a friend that told me once: "sometimes, the only answer to the question - "why?" - is "because." and i believe he is right. so - attaboy to bob h and don-ssimo.
