"... spend the next 10 months getting that tank filled from the dirtiest compressor known to mankind, does the initial cleaning and the silly stickers make that tank any safer????"

"... because the tank has an 02 clean sticker and/or a Nitrox banner on it that it means that tank hasn't been exposed to hydrocarbons than he is living in fantasyland..."

Mike,

Obviously not. That is why once you have the cylinder cleaned, you make sure you get gas from a clean source. VIP stickers also indicate a once a year opportunity to check for dirty nitrox cylinders.
