Do you tend to get your information and opinions from forums, Youtube, or other colloquial sources?I am "guilty" of being one of these cross-members whose point of view seems to shift from time to time, so I feel I need to provide my view on this subject. For me, it is not about pleasing people because I actually tend to piss people off when my position shifts on any given subject. The reason for these changes in my views is simply evolution in my understanding of the situation and people involved. Sure, sometimes I am guilty of assuming too much about people (mainly Amir) based on my instinctive perception of a situation or their own actions, but I am fully willing to admit my mistakes when I acquire more information about the issue or a person.
There is nothing that prevents a person from changing their mind on a subject when presented with more evidence. You have to put people's comments in a historical context of what was known about a subject matter at a given point in time. I refuse to be in any inflexible camp (i.e. objectivist/subjectivist) which tends to put a set of blinders on and bulldozes over anyone who dares to oppose their worldview. Personally, as the time goes on, I tend to be more on the objectivist side, without ruling out a possibility of further advances in how we measure audio reproduction.
