Jon, this thread has been up for roughly 10 days or so... There are probably hundreds of Blu-ray owners that frequent these threads on a regular basis. I haven't done a formal count but I doubt I would need more than one hand to do so. You can't even be sure all of those are genuine. I did a thread search on a couple of people that left negative comments and lets just say they aren't exactly big boosters of the Blu-ray format. Though I don't doubt there are other defective discs like yours, I am not convinced that it is more than a very isolated problem.
When I worked in ad sales, our magazines usually came from the printer with proper registration and colors were generally spot on. But you know what? Somewhere in those runs there was an occasional problem like an ink spot or the registration would go askew before a press check corrected the problem. In a newly mass produced medium like Blu-ray discs or HD DVDs, to expect perfection is ludicrous. There is absolutely no evidence that this is anything but an isolated production glitch. I would get with the folks at Buena Vista and trade that disc for a new one now.
It should be a question mark rather than an exclamation point at the end of the thread title.
