And I think that was the whole motivation behind this whole scam in the first place--to for some reason send storage demands to the ceiling and squeeze supplies. Maybe as a proving ground for introducing fakes into the desperate market and to see how well it tolerates fakes for long-term profitabilty from fakes? It's worked for gpus as there's lots of fakers out there making big money on that since the last cryptocurrency mania. I really hate the type of people that do stuff like this. :mad:

And I also hate the Manufacturers for playing along.
