Poor engineering is a defect.
"Poor engineering" is a very subjective term. I'm just trying to explain the DIFFERENCE between defects and workable systems designed for good reason which that owners may choose to upgrade.

can adhere to them and render them inoperable. I consider them "poor engineering".
