    There is actually nothing wrong with their tests that I can see,
    (except their best case DR figures are worthless in real life) if
    they'd limit it to that and avoid the explanations, they'd be better
    off because it's there that the misdirection takes form. The language
    they use has always been the problem. Anyone can look at images and
    the noise, DR, etc., Graph the results, no problem. The salesmanship
    used in the descriptions of what is visible is the problem.
