Yes, but I'm getting between 50 and 80 messages per day, the majority 
of which are crap rather than anything useful. For example, the 
continuing Doepfer saga, the MC303 vs Drumstation debate - all this 
argument over 2 machines that I doubt the majority of us would ever 
buy over the originals they seek to replace. Personally, I couldn't 
give a shit about whether it uses physical modelling, devious use of 
samples, or springs and rubber bands as long as it sounds good, and 
surely that is something that we must each decide for ourselves by
listening to it, not because someone else says it does? So why waste 
all this time arguing about it

For those of us that pay for our net access this waste of bandwidth is starting
to spoil what is generally a highly useful and interesting mailing list.
