    Someone is not liking the competition.

    They have had their attack dogs on ACA pull a repeat the of the exact same hatchet job with the exact same talking heads less than 6 months ago.

    Utterly disgraceful.

    One thing that I have noted is that you do not say what you are buying. I do not think that you can do a fair comparison if people do not know what you are comparing to. Is it the same things or different things in those categories?

      Hi Ang,

      The full list and data will be published soon. I did not want to show which products I was comparing just in case any of the retailers being tested tried to manipulate the results. I am hoping to analyse the data and provide a full report within the next two weeks.
