. . . so I'm sitting here watching Deadpool on FX even though I own it, and they left the cuss words in!!, and thought that there was "gunk" on my remote and started to scratch it off. I got pitch plastic black gunk under my nails. "YUCK!" SO it turns out to be like Logitech and their "rubberized" plastic that is only a coating over the plastic that over time and body oil disintegrates and leaves you with a peeling mess. So that "Textured" area is actually a coating from what this is telling me. Just took some 3M Desk & Office (not sure how much of the office it does, although Bob the Progress Thermometer Programmer could use a good wipe down) Cleaner and wiped it down and nothing came off. In the light the it looks like the paint job of the S.S. Minnow.
