Haven't had that problem with my force sls or my mcs. I would keep them in a well ventilated area.....

It sounded like you were implying that the bindings smelled because they were Chinese - as if all things Chinese smelled. (Which is a big stereotype, at least here in the States).

From the context of your post it could have been taken either way.

Anyway.. maybe Febreeze will help the problem? :-/

I would just return that shit. Sounds like it could be something nasty. Nothing should smell like that.

Call Union, return.

He's not talking about Chinese people smelling, he's talking about how their quality control in factories sometimes suck...

Like those little incidences where lead got into everything...

Yeah, I thought that too. Poor choice of words on his part. I do agree though, China makes some shady products. When I went to China I bought a watch over in Guangzhou and when I went to wash my hands, the watch stopped working altogether.

What a dumbass comment to say that Chinese water stops watches. I guess I'll have to get worked up over it now and post my disapproval, because it's the internet.... so these things matter.

And you're some sort of shining intellectual beacon in a sea of cultural insensitivity?
