But, you see, I DID get in touch with Rapido. I sent information to both Gareth and Bill, and they responded. I came up with numerous photos, including ones I bought just for the purpose. I offered opinions--informed opinions.
I think I made it clear that I would do everything I could to ensure the SP&S models were accurate. One could at least imply that to be the case, if one thought about the amount of time I put in doing research. I never once blew them off. I never ignored a question. I always tried to back up my statements with evidence.
So. It is NOT in part "because".
They had everything they needed.
