Re: Rick replies for the last time on this subject

I've got to agree with Rick.  I know that, for myself, I had a lot 
(and somewhat financially) invested in the Repeater.  My looper is a huge 
of how I make music, and that I make music is a huge part of me, so with 
tight, it's easy to get over excited about it's flaws and percieved flaws. 
can't imagine it's easy for Kim either, to have is "baby" challanged.  I
ultimately think it will be good for the EDP, and loopers of all kinds, 
but I
think that this was effecting the climate of Loopers Delight before the WTC
attack.  No one wants to think "oh no, I bought the wrong thing" or "shit, 
expensive thing I bought is obsolete."

I've also seen this happen many times on different lists I've belonged to.
Frankly, with no moderator, I'm amazed the Loopers list is as good as it 
If I were Kim I would have gave one warning and started kick/banning any 
ignored the warning.  Obviously the Loopers Delight mailing list is not a 
to discuss politics.  My way of dealing with it is to put an email filter 
the offending posters.  Perhaps if we all did this, sooner or later the
offenders would wonder why no one replied to their posts and unsubscribe 
they could figure out how to)  Yeah, I'm cranky and jaded, but I like it 
way.  After a hellish work week, I really don't have the time.
