Given that it's an Industrial Plus(Read: used hard), there's probably all sorts of unholiness in the carb.

Now that we learned that written words on the internet can be misread,
and jokes -no matter how bad- might be conceived as a true intention.
I cleaned up this thread a bit.

I thank ALL participators for standing up and making clear
that fraudulent behaviour is not going to be tolerated!

PS I know.. we can't tell... let's just hope for the best
