In reply to: THE PURPOSE OF THIS POP QUIZ? posted by Mike on August 28, 2002 at 04:33:44:

: I've just kind of scanned through the posts about the microscope
: tests. We all know that we can tell quite a bit about the quality
: a particular henna just by trying it. What purpose does this "quiz"
: serve, except to point out what some people, especially POTENTIAL
: CONSUMERS may consider to be defects in quality?

Some people don't want to have to do the guesswork. This is the same
principle behind why we have 1-800-dentist or consumer's digest.

: I remember reading that the test results had nothing to do with the
: quality of stain......So as long as there are no chemicals or other
: unsafe substances in the henna powder, WHAT DOES IT MATTER?

People don't enjoy doing things which could be unnecesary to achieve
the desired result. Here, the desired result is a very clean henna
powder. When using a very clean henna, i have to do no work before
mixing, and when i eventually use the paste, it is a joy to work
with. Less hassle is the operative. And remember, some people can't
sift their own, due to sneezing fits or allergies and general
constraints of time or otherwise.

: Consider this:
: People buy cereals, flours, and grains everyday. These products all
: contain bits and pieces of insects, etc... Why are they in there?
: Because there is no ABSOLUTE clean way to process them that would
: economical. Wouldn't it make sense that henna powder would contain
: things that the processing company didn't exactly want?

This is true, but are bug parts in food products a nuiscance to you?
Not usually. Are large bits and plant scrap in henna a nuiscance?
Yes, absolutely! They clog tips and make fine work impossible. You
don't even notice the bug parts in your candy bar when you eat them.
And if you knew that a particular food product has more bug parts and
other crud in it than another of the same product, which one would
you buy?

: There is nothing wrong with self promotion CCJ, but when that self
: promotion is at the expense of others, it may not be worth it.

What exactly has CCJ got to promote? I'd be very interested to know.
