Default Re: Vortex: Round 2

Vortex rocks! It is the real deal .. no hype about it. I can tell you plenty of products that are "hyped" (see number 4 below) .. Vortex is definitely not one of them!

You said "I see what the hype is all about now." I have to clear you and a ton of others on the definition of hype though .. hype is a very bad word and used improperly by billions of people.

hype 1 (hp) Slang n.1. Excessive publicity and the ensuing commotion: the hype surrounding the murder trial.
2. Exaggerated or extravagant claims made especially in advertising or promotional material: "It is pure hype, a gigantic PR job" (Saturday Review).
3. An advertising or promotional ploy: "Some restaurant owners in town are cooking up a $75,000 hype to promote New York as 'Restaurant City, U.S.A.'" (New York).
4. Something deliberately misleading; a deception: "[He] says that there isn't any energy crisis at all, that it's all a hype, to maintain outrageous profits for the oil companies" (Joel Oppenheimer).
