“I think I read yesterday, here on FR, that this target company has pulled said targets off the market.”
I’d advise you to carefully pay attention to the wording when you read statements like that.
The company said they pulled the targets from the internet, not that they stopped making or selling them. The wording would lead me to believe that they’re still going to manufacture them and sell them to the agencies that ordered them in the first place, however they won’t risk keeping the advertisements up on the internet to draw public criticism. The company’s “apology” as some people have termed it was equally obfuscatory and insincere.
Taken offline, not off market.
The companys apology as some people have termed it was equally obfuscatory and insincere. //
That is an important distinction.
The info I wrote in #7 would be better stated that way, that they'd pulled to website ads... THEN LIED about it afterwards. This was discussed, with screen shots taken and saved, on the earlier thread at 42, 44, 51 et al.
