There is a difference between venting and when the same rant makes up all your posts.

In some cases, the answer may just be YES. And what better way to do it.
Weeding.

Has Paint Talk become a propaganda site for one particular manufacturer? Surfactant leaching is not a unique phenomenon that happens in one brand of paint. All water based paints have surfactants in them, and when leaching occurs, it's caused by moisture and or cold temperatures. Although 15%-30% of a job might be tied up in the products used, the real profit remains and will always remain in the labor and the efficiencies created in the execution of the project. if the focus is only to save time and money on the supplies, then many are missing the big opportunity to maximize their profit.
