    Press releases are really quite poor and I still don't know why they are, to this day.

    And I've ended friendships over peoples' insistence I read "natural news." He's a scam artist.

      Press releases are poor because they are written by PR staff whose job is to "make the institution look good," so they are used to adding hyperbole and subtracting uncertainty.

      Agreed about NN: Mikey is a fraudster, NN is a scam, and his latest thing about playing at science in order to scare people away from competing products (and toward his products) is classic scam.  He really needs to be prosecuted.
