And it is in the consumers best interest to understand that that claim is just smoke and mirrors.

And I am not saying that their paints are "bad" paints by any means, just that they are far from the best and grossly over priced. Even at 30% off.
They have to pay for the stores, college graduate delivery drivers, and TV commercials somehow.
There colorants are 0 voc

Nope. They are less then 50gpl. This allows them to advertise them as zero voc by EPA regulations. The only true 0 voc colorants widely available are the Gennex colorants by Ben Moore, which are patent protected and the Trillion colorants from California that are used under a protected license. The P&L Charisma colorants that I use are the same colorants used by SW, and they are promoted to the dealers as a o voc colorant line but they are not actually 0 voc. They are only allowed to call them 0voc.

I suppose it comes from the people trying to sell you their paint? As opposed to someone who doesn't really care or know what paint you use?
That makes sense.

As far as Emerald is considered, it is not a great choice for many and all due to its anti-fade claims. Avoid using very expensive paint. You can opt for satin super-paint which asks for minimum maintenance and lasts longer than any other variant.

So paint is not good because it's anti-fade.

Where do these people come from?
