It has only the symbols that they approve of. Only Kashrus experts can see the 200 or so symbols that the cRc disapproves of or didn't approve yet.
WikiLeaks anyone?

Even they do to some extent.

You guys know that there aren't really that many sfeikos to justify more than a shekel or two increase  ???

The more you talk the dumber you sound. Your sources are nothing more than the street chatter of clueless individuals no different than yourself.

Rubin is lower than the Eida and is the same level as Sheiris? Nice try ;D

Implying that eida will always throw out sfeikos (as you stated already above), while rubin and sheiris will sometimes throw out a sofeik.  Just keep drinking the kool-aid  ::)

the fact that eida throws out more sfeikos than rubin doesn't make them (necessarily) a better hechsher.      consider taking a moment to digest what you read, you could use it

That CANT be TRUE!! Cuz my friend told me that Eida throws out EVERY single chicken, and he has proof cuz he doesn't see them selling eida chicken in his local supermarket anymore and they used 2 sell them there and it must be that ALL chickens are SOFEIK and TREIF and therefore they stopped selling CHICKEN!! also I heard that rubin is chabad so he probably converts treif chickens into kosher ones and his sofeiks koshers into vadais! Theres no comparison, rabbosai, it obvious! :o

Shame them into getting better.

Dan, The non reliable hashgacha's are quick to threaten to sue for defamatory statements. Therefore kashrus agencies will only publish a list of recommended hashgachas, although when asked about a non reputable agency they will reply "We don't recommend them"
