<Unlike many of the...well, self-righteous, ignorant blowhards is too

lawsuit involving improper instructions. >


This sounds like a legitimate product liability issue.

But don't get down on the rest of the list. No one has said anything about
legitimate warnings or actual product liability.

But the fact that a company now has to warn users not to iron their clothes
while wearing them because some airhead did that and sued them IS
ridiculous.
