Not too fond of the word gullible either.

But then again Caveat Emptor (buyer beware) also applies, and consumers should be responsible and research before merely believing what they are told.

Mixed breed "designer" dogs are the ones really paying for humanity's lack of interest in taking responsibility and researching before buying.

But consumers have fallen for descriptive names on products for a long, long time. In the Victorian era, people would pay extra for plant seeds just because it contained terms like "improved," when in fact it was regular seeds all along and nothing was improved at all. The only difference was a higher price tag.
