IMHO it is much more useful to have a more complete set of data, even 
if it shows shortcomings, than to have a "redacted" set that leaves out 
some not-so-good areas.

marketing is good, but we are not micro$haft, after all. i don't think 
we have to stoop to that level of "being economical with the truth".
