(Psssssssssst! Stands are snake oil.)
No, silly. Stands are based on sound engineering principles. They are NOT like those other things, those snake oil things - the ones that aren't based on scientific principles and cannot be explained... the ones that never come with any data.
Yes, silly, consider the conflicting opinions concerning stands and you have what?
If we can't measure it, it's what?
Consider the cost - most stands are well over the $3 "rationality" limit of the naysayers - and you have what?
Consider "data-schmata" - ever buy a Target stand with an Owner's Manual?
"Snake Oil!" I say!!!
