Mail Time, Part 1

Now, if these so-called tech reporters knew enough about the RM, they'd press folks on the data reduction advantage of High NF and why they did, or more likely didn't, go that route. But, of course they don't. Just as reporters in any other specialty area, they're still generalists who don't know enough to avoid the BS.
