    ROR is good stuff. It was recommended to me, so I went to get some. I didn't get it when I saw that claim, just out of principle, and also suspicion that someone who would say something like that might not care if there were something in it that would cause harm. I was given some with assurance of never having had any problem, and I have to say it works well. Too bad that they chose to make such an unethical claim- their product stands on its own merit.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    That's the facet of advertising that makes me want to punt puppies.

    i used ROR years ago good-stuff!
    it was really strange, i got back to my studio, put it on my lens
    and swedish model appeared out of no where put a LP on the phonograph, started to dance. she made great coffee.

    after i cleaned a few lenses, i ended up giving the stuff to a friend who was recently divorced to cheer him up.

    It's a figure of speech! Sheesh!
    I love animals, all animals. Those which aren't cute are often delicious.

    Dude, that Swedish model was Mrs. Olson from the Folgers commercials!

    Those ROR fumes can do strange things to people...

    Sometimes both! Hamsters make a delightful snack after three minutes in the microwave.

    Four minutes and you have a new game, "pop goes the hamster".
    New gourmet treat, "burst toad".

    I think the aliens have been messing with me again... full moon too.

    I like it that after three minutes you just yank on the tail and the whole pelt comes right off.

    Yes, but the cooking damages it. If you want to line gloves, or insulate one's codpiece, you need to start with raw pelts.
