Re: [APD] Questionable advertising in Aquarium Fish Magazine

I think "questionable" overstates the accuracy of that ad.

But.  All advertisements in any publication or on the web should be
evaluated critically.  Many exaggerate the benefits of the product or
misinform the reader, but that's how ads are and have been ever since the
first one appeared.

It is not reasonable to expect publications and web sites to check the
accuracy of all ads that they publish.  In fact, that could be considered
censorship in a lot of cases.

"Critical thinking" is a concept that is not taught very well in our
schools.  People should question and research everything that they read that
doesn't quite seem right.
