    OK, that's exactly how I read it. And exactly what I meant by my comment. Except not all E-cigarette companies are. So that's why I said they've lumped all companies into that statement

    They really haven’t. Plural means “more than one”. It doesn’t mean “all”.

    Jesus, I know what plural means. But by saying 'E-cigarette companies ' it can be taken as if they are all one, and all selling it

    You could take it that way, but if that’s the way you interpret the use of a plural you’re likely to go about your days being confused about a lot of things.

    I used plural in my previous comment to highlight the fact that they said companies, plural, rather than company, singular.
