NCGC adds disclaimer to NPC browser

Well progress of sorts on the compound quality issue in the NPC browser. Weeks after bringing this to their attention there is now a disclaimer (see snapshot below). Not sure when this was added but spotted it today by chance. Could it be because it made it to the in the pipeline blog? My take on this is they are working to resolve the problems (good) -they have not fixed them yet and of course no explicit acceptance that structures are incorrect (bad). So it is a warning to users. My question is why would anyone want to download a database that it is so full of errors and is only partially curated?From what I understand from Antony Williams blog he has curated parts of the dataset but not all.Anyone out there tried to curate the whole thing?
