ugh - dread tying

I know that dreads can and will be lumpy and bumpy and all kinds of interesting shapes in the process of forming, and that's perfectly normal. however i came across these on a professional dread site, and i believe that the strange indentations all along the length are a prime example of what happens when you band off or tie dread bases, as the site plainly advertises that that's what they do... notice the pattern to the dents, every half inch to an inch or so, from the repeated "maintenance" every few months. From what I've read, this causes weak spots in the dreads, or parts where it just never dreads.
