And, back on topic....

The whole point about bringing to everyone's attention about Brand X being superior in certain regards is NOT to belittle your choice of arranger, or to prove the poster's superiority in choosing that brand.

The idea is to start you thinking about whether you would actually LIKE those abilities, and if so, start to put pressure on your arranger's manufacturer to add said capabilities. They lurk here, you know. This is the best free focus group they have. If large numbers of posts start appearing that say Brand Y's voice editing capabilities are sub-par, you don't think that is going to effect their R&D?

You've got to remember, these are not our children or grandkids. They are tools. Plain and simple. Tools that can be improved. Stop being so defensive over a stupid tool... If you can't think of anything that needs improving, you are just not trying hard enough!

The more pressure we place on the manufacturers, the more chance we have of actually seeing our wishes come true. Otherwise, we are simply sheep, at the mercy of whatever hare-brained idea the marketing departments come up with (and ALL of us have some features on our arrangers that make us go 'what moron came up with THIS idea?!').....

So, a poster posting about the superiority of Brand X at certain aspects of use is NOT an insult to your mother, it's a discussion about a TOOL. Keep thinking that while you post, and a lot of the flames just die out.
