Re: Everybody plays with words
Throttling is still a limit. That's why I say the word "unlimited" should be banned in advertising as both alluring and unrealistic, the way American cigarette ads are uber-restricted for the same two reasons.
Frankly, if I could propose a law in America's Congress, it would be to force all advertisers to the same standards they would have to face if they were testifying in a court: the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. They must sell their ads strictly on facts and typical results, not image, not atypical testimonials, with all claims told pessimistically. Failure to adhere will result both in fines and in a ban on any not-on-site advertising for varying periods.
