To keep things in perspective, I was only reacting to misstatements of
fact. I have no objection to anyone explaining why they like their pump. As
I said, this is a personal decision based on your own personal life-style.
There is no right or wrong here. In my opinion, both are good pumps.
If you read my post carefully you would see that I was not objecting to
basic information on the D pump. I was concerned about bad information
about the MM pump. Sharing what you like about your pump is just fine. But,
unless you've used both pumps, you shouldn't make statements about how the
other brand functions. I know this makes talking about the differences more
difficult, but it is the only way to keep these discussions based on what
we personally know.
Here are my suggested guidelines for pump discussions on this list:
1. Talk about the features in your pump that you like and explain how your
pump works. This is practical information based on first-hand knowledge.
2. Be candid about things that you don't like too. We are here to share
information, not to sell pumps. Every brand has their own quirks.
3. Don't talk about the other brand unless you are a very experienced user
of both types. What you've "been told" or what you "assume" the other brand
does (or does not do) may not be either based on fact or important in
4. Please realize that there is not a right or wrong pump choice. We choose
our pumps for both factual and subjective reasons. You will be happy with
whichever pump you select.
Happy pumping to all, and to all a good night...
