...and I certainly have my own superstitions when it comes to audio (and other things), so who am I to judge?
Online discussions about digital audio make me so sad....
We're living in an era of anti intellectualism, social media has given everybody the same platform, which they can use to originate or regurgitate information.
It's a gish gallop of solopsism and emotionally charged rhetoric, exactly paralleled by the ubiquity of music making tools and the resultant conformity.
People who should know better shamelessly peddle half truths because it serves their business interests.
Observations and practices based on superstition, gut feelings, or anecdotal evidence are not facts, and one should pay close attention when the discussions about things they clearly don't understand make them feel upset, because therein lies madness.
