The "P-word" was Re: B-Plus Fix

From:Amos Brooks

    I don't want to go back to the vendor bashing bit we were on before.
That is not the point. I was not referring to BBC specifically. I was
describing the increasing use of the "P-word" by all vendors. And to tell
you the truth I have found the exact opposite to be true. MOST vendors that
use that vilified word tend to be very hush hush about the ingredients when
    If BBC is willing to divulge the secret brew then I love them even more
for it. This is based upon my experience with other products. (Perhaps I
should have changed the subject line to be more clear)
    I still adamantly stand my ground that I would be more willing to buy a
product that I know than some Voo-Doo snake oil that you drop on the wet
tissue and it turns it into a slide ready for reading. I just don't trust it
unless I can quantify it with chemistry. (But us techs & product users just
don't understand such things ... see  the "Histology doesn't have enough
issues" thread)

Sprinkling a ring of salt around my microtome ...
