What's the ROI on recovering that, Ted? Marketing?

There are clearly easy pickings. In the end, those easy pickings are going
to come back into inventory without a huge amount of effort on our part.

There are certainly bigger fish to fry and sometimes subtlety works better
than the stick. I believe that as a community we've come to consensus on the
former. The latter will be most difficult to achieve.
