that’s the thing with these coded messages though: anyone could have added them. unless someone would have asked why the matrix code was suddenly a bit longer, nobody would have noticed.

on the other hand, i would expect everyone involved to have noticed – even i noticed, and i’ve got nothing to do with it – but who knows? if you’re not expecting people to add things to the matrix code, you probably don’t check if it looks ok all the time.[/quote:37hf2526]

maybe you don’t, normally.
we check these. collectors do. The Smiths are infamous for the messages and there are numerous remarks in dead wax matrix codes. sometimes cryptic, sometime plain.

this one was ordedered to be this way as per the label. so, yeah well… this was intentional… :)
