Fw: Stainless Loop Cap - waterlogged

From the complaints department - sent over a month ago and no reply.  Emailed the eBay vendor today... maybe they'll respond somehow:

Subject: Stainless Loop Cap - waterlogged

I received my first 18oz Klean Kanteen very excitedly last week.  I specifically ordered and paid extra for a stainless steel lid (loop cap) because I wanted to avoid any plastic parts in contact with my water.  However, the very first time I washed the lid (by hand), the inside of the cap filled with water and now makes a sloshing sound.  It seems impossible to open and clean inside - meaning whatever dishwater is trapped in there is going to eventually fester and grow algae, mold, etc.  I am extremely disturbed that something like this would happen to a product known for its cleanliness (or, perhaps, "kleanliness", which may be something different) and non-toxic durability.
 
I understand that this is the reason you recommend against dishwasher use with the caps.  However, since we don't even have a dishwasher, the cap was only washed by hand along with the bottle and immersed for just a short time.
 
I'm not using the bottle now, and I'm wondering whether the PP#5 lid is a one-piece design, and if so, whether it might be possible to exchange one for this useless, water-logged stainless steel lid.  :-(
 
I'd appreciate any help you can offer.

Ancient Auction Secret: If Chinese auctions are racist, why do Jews love them so much?

Ah, Jews, Jews, Jews, Jews.  You sure do love your Chinese auctions, don’t you? It seems that even in an era of political correctness, within certain circles, this term just will not die . And frankly, I’m mortified. I’m not Chinese, but I have family who is Chinese.  Some are Korean, as well.  I guess this makes us more ethnically diverse than many Jews, but I suspect most Jewish families are moving in this direction.  Still.  Even if we don’t know a single Chinese person, we should still stop calling it that. First of all… is it actually racist to call it a Chinese auction? I figured I’d let Chinese people decide.  But when I turned to Google to find out how Chinese people feel about Chinese auctions, what I found was mostly… nothing.  Silence.  I did find some debate (presumably among non-Chinese people) over whether it was too far in the direction of political correctness to refer to these as a “silent auction” or (as in some parts of the States) a “tricky tray.”  (Ok
