I get your point, even ensconced inside the sarcasm, so I'll just say it
bluntly that I do realize 99.99% of the people out there do not care that
they're completely unable to intelligently purchase things using a modicum
of logic.

These people all want a "number line" decision, where they can use the
good, better, best by "marketing derived" criteria, such as silly words
like "ceramic" (where one spec of clay makes it a ceramic) and
"semi-metallic" (where one spec of iron makes it metallic).

You're one of those people, most likely (based on Occam's Razor deduction),
and that's fine.

You *think* you're intelligently choosing a brake pad, and that's fine too.

And YOU think YOU are smart. (nobody else does - sorry to break your

You may even buy by one of the three marketing-induced criteria:
a. If you're cost conscious, you buy the cheapest FF that fits.
b. If you're value conscious, you buy the mid FFs (with a small price bump)
c. If you're status conscious, you buy the high FFs (bigger price jump)

and if you are SMART you buy the type of pad that matches
yourdriving requirements - which for most commuters is a standard
organic pad, for heavy duty use, a semi metallioc, and for high speed
light duty, generally a ceramic.
I'm not like you.
I like to *understand* that which I buy.

And yet you most certainly do NOT when it comes to brakes. You are
totally clueless and uneducatable

That's my take on the main difference between you and me base on the one
line you wrote.

I like to make intelligent buying decisions.
You apparently don't care to - and that's fine.

and you seem to be totally incapable of it.
