Making mistakes is one thing.  Everybody does it, and it can be 
excused.  What can't be excused is deliberately using names known to 
be something other than what the hybridizer gave and, furthermore, 
refusing to change even when the errors are called to the attention 
of the perpetrator.  What can't be excused, either, is selling 
shoddy, poor quality merchandise under the guise of offering a great 
bargain.  Businesses who make a habit of such practices deserve to be 
expose, and buyers should be warned.
