Scrowe: I cannot respond to all of your ignorant screed. You need to step back and think about this, and find a way to ask honest and sincere questions, and to search for truth and knowledge.

Decatur: "because it is a strong mark that Tylenol has protected over the years through trademark protection" it's b/c of reputation.
