Your response by posting that video is wrong in so many ways.

Wrong, but also funny.

We thought about taking our hybrid camper out west to visit and camp in national parks. Then I read about the precautions needed for camping around bears. A hybrid camper has canvas tent ends that expand the sleeping capability. We love that feature because it allows a smaller camper to comfortably sleep more people and it just seems more like real camping. I'm thinkin' that the bears would appreciate the advantages of canvas too, but for the wrong reasons.

Apparently Dingos like tent ends also.

Because you misjudge?

In reality the inhouse censors are actually quite amoral.

amoral
/eɪˈmɒr(ə)l/
adjective
lacking a moral sense; unconcerned with the rightness or wrongness of something.
"an amoral attitude to sex"
synonyms: unprincipled, without standards, without morals;


Yep......and that's why the inhouse censors created the Danger Zone and then even went to the extent of reshuffling it's ease of accessibility??

But wait ..........could it be that you are right and that the inhouse censors are unprincipled, without standards, without morals and that is why they have free reign to reign how they please??

Just askin!

Just sayin!
