How about this one?

Difference = Degradation

If they heard a difference, and understood enough about the circuit they designed to understand direct coupling didn't upset the operating condition, it seems obvious.

Bolding mine. Today I'm from Missouri. Show me. The correct concept is 'unknown', not 'unknowable'. The latter is though a pretty good representation of how objectivists cast them.

Can we hope, with trembling lip and heart a-quiver, that some of our objectivist brethren will actually begin to wonder about the pros and cons of GNFB, given that GNFB is never free of capacitive coupling? Are we now over-reaching?
What?

Any semblance of credibility this article had is shattered by that one statement.

That was a boo boo. There is no law (or truth) that states that GNFB requires a cap... it doesn't.

Am I the only guy here who thinks NatSemi/TI/OnSemi engineers lurk in these forums?

corbato,

Are you the only guy who thinks he isn't talking to "one" of these engineers?

Most smart guys don't post that much... the BS is too thick,

Makes sense, I buy.
Now, will this conclude a DC blocking capacitor disturbes the signal path or more appropiately, the overall system behavior in an unmeasurable way?

This I (hope many more) don't buy. There is no precedent and no scientific context in which acceptance "as is" of this fact can fit.

It is National's engineers responsibility - if management allows - to delve further, first discovering measurable signal diferences, then linking to circuit behavior, thus enriching our knowledge.
