Quoted from schmoo:
Actually, between the words "fake" and "reproduction" , the word "reproduction" is much more fitting. "Fake" carries with it negative connotations, implying that it is an attempt to pass itself off as an original (e.g.) fake Gucchi bags. However, you know this, which is why you are using the word and "faking" objectivity.
Um, in truth, isn’t objectivity subjective? I think we’re debating semantics; the dictionary defines fake as “having a false or misleading appearance.” To me, that sounds like the new MMR. It will be far from the majesty of a Williams’ work of art. Say what you want, but fake is synonymous with reproduction and I expect the new MM will be a cheap and overrated piece of trash. As Teekee muses, post your banal musings on another thread, and let this guy sell his friggin’ machine, tool-bag.
