No, it's just normal that after 25 years in the computer industry
you get suspicious of any company that sends "hot spares" for
any product... and you've just demonstrated the major point of my post
because - you sound like you are among the people who have to run down
other peoples choices to validate yours... that observation is based on 20
years in the ministry working with people from all kinds of backgrounds in
all kinds of counseling situations... and that's not a flame but an
observation, since most of the post you got so upset about is written to
point out the flaws of the over-enthusiastic supporters of either pump
company... Read the last part - both companies make decent products. Like
all products, what one person calls features another calls design flaws... to
denigrate either pump company is just a waste of time which could be
better spent working on the doctors and insurance companies to get them to
the point where more people would get a chance to see what pump therapy
(with either pump!) has to offer...

According to the Disetronic literature and Disetronic users, the pump shuts
down after two years. There is a timer in each pump so you have to send it
back to be refurbished/checked/reset when the timer shuts the pump down.
It's not "pure unadulterated lies" but it's one of those "extra features"
and is actually talked about as a good feature by the D reps.
