I appreciate your dedication to the product, and pardon me if I occasionally yank your chain. It is really intended in humor. My brother was a lead chemist for Glidden industrial coatings. Of course they have been through a lot of ownership changes and divestments. I never had problems with them. I think my use of the BM products stems more from the good service I get at the store where I buy it as anything to do with the paint. I can buy other brands for less at the big boxes, but they don't know what color I last painted my living room. An besides, the paint guy there used to date my daughter in High School, gives me a discount and knows my by name. Now how's that for a reason.
