It was my understanding people were importing OS data into GB?

This is one of the points most people have continued to miss time and
time again no matter how often I've said it, it's the methods being
employed to try and get people to change is what I hate the most,
lying by omission is very common, people aren't being given all the
pertinent facts on the matter to make an actual judgment.

I've spoken to one person since they've agreed and gave some of the
cons and they were upset that they weren't informed better about the
situation, they felt some what cheated how they were corralled into
accepting, others have made similar comments in the last few days
about their own experiences.
