Fair enough, but in my introduction thread, I said that I'd not be very active in bashing anyone's recordings and I laid out my reasons. You're the first to say anything about it, so I've been under the assumption that no one cares whether I "bash" or not. In that same vein, I'm not interested in anyone critiquing my own recordings, so it goes both ways. If I'm not going to critique, it's not fair that I ask for critiques, and vice versa etc etc, and I haven't asked anyone for anything. If you don't think I'm giving enough, that's fine, but I'm not taking anything either. My friends have been active as far as I can tell, but I'm not their keeper. They do what they want. As far as other participation, I've participated in other discussions. Well, the ones I feel that I can maybe add something. I mean, how many plug-in conversations do I need to have to be considered an active participant? Plug-ins seems to be the main course at RR. Their use, implementation, various plugs, etc. I'm not a plug-in jockey. I don't know anything about the latest and greatest plug-ins, nor do I care, so what could I possibly offer conversations like that?
Whether or not that thread is helpful is up to the individual. I know it's helped people. And some people don't want anything to do with it. It's fine either way.
