Any new person might wear or do something inaccurate from ignorance, they are not a ****. An otherwise progressive person might have an inaccurate item, that they will replace when a more accurate one becomes available or priced reasonably... they are not a ****. A person may need to do something inaccurate to accomodate a medical situation... they are not a ****.
