Just to add to what David wrote, I have seen this as well. I dropped my
stylus at one point and I noticed that it marred the stylus somewhat. I
was careful to use the smooth side of the stylus and quickly ordered a
3-pack (~$10) of styli. I seem to remember that someone else on this
list had this occur sometime ago. Unfotunately, he didn't notice the
stylus defect until it was too late.
