But he does work in the fields that high end audio may be and are involved with. JJ has his pedantic screechy repetitive bits and parts just like the rest of us....and being forced to mark his affiliations may slow him down just enough....
You're dreaming, sport. I simply refuse to take abuse, especially from the ignorant, or even more so, from the intentionally ignorant. The dishonest will get no quarter at all. That's how it is, and that's how it will be.
I make no secret of my affiliations in any case.
And, besides, I know the game. If I DO put my "affiliations" in my signature, then it's the "oooh, look at mister smarty pants" argument.
You're playing to a baldly obvious magician's force, and it's so pathetically obvious that I think I'll just explain this nonsense to everyone.
A magicians force, also known as a "whipsaw" argument goes thusly, in its most bald, obvious form.
The magician puts a gold coin in one hand, and holds out both hands closed, and says: "Pick a hand".
The rube picks one or the other.
If it's the result the Magician wants, he'll open that hand and say "here, this is your xxx". If it's the other result, he'll say "ok, that's my hand, here's yours".
That's what this kind of debate is really about, a demand for some way, any way at all, to put down the opponent.
Just so we're clear on how this all works.
