Is there a danger that the DS gets too picky and rejects everything that
doesn't quite agree with it? If the DS sells things itself, its reviewers
might be reluctant to endorse a competitor's products. I hope it has a
system that minimises this problem. I'm not accusing it of being unfair,
but if it goes on approving its own products I'm sure someone will.
