I went back to the M600 Pink thread and see it was just 1 person complaining about packaging and that was the same person doing so here. Everyone else was celebrating with OP on her new acquisition.
That is, by the very definition, a vocal minority. 1 person out of 20 or so that commented there.
Hmmm. Looking at the box and it's got the same sort of ribbon threading as on the pink 600. And nobody has said word one about it yet? Whereas there was lots of ranting over the box for the pink one and whether it was sexy or sexist....
So yet again, another thread where even in quote "nobody said a word about it yet". And there was certainly not "a lot of ranting" in previous thread, as it was only that same person in quote doing it there as well.
If this is such a passionate topic to the user in question and nobody else, perhaps it would make more sense to contact Pelikan about it rather than us. At the end of the day, we can't do anything about it anyway.
Or, come to terms with not being the targeted demographic for this specific product and let people who are enjoy and celebrate their new acquisitions without raining on their parade.
P.S.: I'm not offended, I'm discussing.
