Diamond being abrasive is news?

I've always advised against diamond on exposed dies because of the abrasiveness.

I think the abrasion is a given, it's the pitting that has formed on some of these heatsinks that is the issue.

If the diamonds arent pulverized fine enough, its really as simple as the Mohs scale. Perhaps he had a bad batch. But dang, fix the damages admit the bad batch remove the bad batch and move on, problem solved.
