The day before yesterday, I received a shipment of four Monteverde inks, in the 80 ml bottles, from a reliable vendor. I have gotten accustomed to opening new bottles of ink to check for problems. To my surprise, the bottle of Motivation Orange contained a large amount of goopy contamination. There was no unusual odor, unlike the problem with Montblanc yellow ink several years ago. The vendor has already dispatched a replacement bottle, but if you have this ink, you should check it. As with the Montblanc ink, it may not be an isolated problem.
