I had a machine that was recalled for catching fire. Mine never did, but it happens. We shouldn't discourage people from reporting faulty products to warn us. What could her motive be for making it up ? Money ?....I mean, it couldn't as simple as claiming whiplash. Resmed would keep her in court for 10 years...
Recall or not, I can tell you from years (35) of experience in the electronics industry, like the printing industry, SHEETS HAPPEN. ULC, FDA, UL, CSA, Hydro, etc., approvals mean only that a good sampling of the product has been tested under the harshest of conditions. A bad batch of components, a mistrained assembly line worker not knowing how to use a soldering station, an inventory control clerk substituting a wrong part, the fickle finger of The Great Architect of the Universe; there are so many variables that could have caused this problem that IMHO IT IS INDEED POSSIBLE for it to happen. No question.
I have seen it with my own eyes many times, trust me.
So, when picking a story apart, we need to be somewhat gentle as although it seems a long shot or an improbability, ANYTHING is possible under the right conditions.
If I were to tell you that 20 feet of my fence disappeared 3 years ago along with an extension ladder and all of my backyard furniture, what would you be thinking if I said it was a tornado but that not a shingle on my roof was damaged on 10 feet away? Now add to this a 50ft. high tree in my neighbor's yard being hauled up by its roots and deposited right between our houses and what would you think. Maybe time to get my head read? Well, it happened. And as an avid ham radio operator, my wife and I both, we have a 75 foot antenna support structure (tower) at the back of our house. No problem. Untouched. yet the antenna on top was also untouched..... but twirled so strongly that it ground the gears inside the antenna rotor to bits. Go figure.
If I were to tell you that lightening never strikes twice in the same spot what would you say if I added that it does. Out hit 15 years ago did 'minor' damage to our property and electronics and we chose NOT to file a claim. Three years later lightening struck bigtime and resulted in a $40K claim for damage, which we DID file. The telephone wiring in the house was mostly vapourized and the breaker panel had to be completely replaced, along with a bunch of wiring. Walls were broken open for inspections. (I know.... you'd say don't stand next to me).
So my point is simply that all is possible and some of us have less communications skills than others. Must be taken with a grain of salt.
I question the disappearance of the poster though and that is about the only thing that makes me think that it was a troll.
There was no joining date, no other information in the post at all. That makes me wonder. Who knows?
I think that we have to take much with a grain of salt. Not all are internet savvy. Let's not scare folks in genuine need of assistance away. Best wait for a pattern to develop over several threads before pulling the plug and asking moderators to remove the poster?
Fall colours. One of God's gifts. Life is fragile and short, savour every moment no matter what your problems may be. These stunning fall colours from my first outing after surviving a month on life support due to H1N1.
