But in this case, we had (and have) no access to the fine print because until one actually ships, the wording is just "allows lending". Because someone asked, we now have the "fine print". As was stated several times, had it said "allows limited lending", this thread wouldn't even exist.

As for product advertising not mentioning limits, when there could be a misunderstanding of the details by any reasonable person, after the big print shouts "FREE CABLE TV FOR LIFE", the size 2 font whispers "after payment of a $10,000 installation fee, non-transferable".

So, yes. Perhaps you aren't, but we are, talking about the wording.

While for many its not a deal-breaker, it still wouldn't have taken much to add one little word in the description to avoid the ill-feeling this thread represents.
