Don't be so sure about that. On a board where TY is revered as a god, many people hesisate to post any negative comments and experience with TY discs. The same has happened with Ritek sometime ago. The first people posting their bad experiences with G04/G05 were made fun of, just like you're making fun of those members who report bonding problems with TY discs. Which doesn't prove anything, agreed, it's not my point.
Further, when experiencing something as peculiar as a disc falling apart when pulling it off from a DVD case, one won't tend to blame it on the disc quality, even less so if it's a Taiyo Yuden disc. Just to comfort their beliefs, people will report problems with CMC, Ritek, Optodisc etc... but will avoid reporting such problems with TY (and/or MCC) because it would endanger their comfortable beliefs, or make them look like iconoclasts on this board (and many others).
Personally I appreciate very much that Dakhaas and Dolphinius_Rex voice some doubtful comments about the almightiness of TY. And considering their background, I wouldn't think they're just playing a "rumors" game. I'm not saying they're right, once again it's not my point.
As a sidenote, CDan, I'd appreciate if you'd try to be a little less ironic, thanks.
