if such list ever becomes public (unlikely) you'll always be free to disregard it

My question was misunderstood- sorry for my poor communication. The "f'rinstance" I asked for was an example of a misleading technical argument motivated by "veiled" commercial interests, where such an argument wouldn't be torn apart by the technical hyenas who wander this zoo.

There is more to this,

Think outside the box..so we identify J bloggs builds chips for military guidance systems...fred s...is linked to nuclear power stations....etc
Or is it just people linked to the audio field? So a designer of TV's would not count?

Sy,
Without naming names I have seen this happen in another thread. The person is a well known person and has credentials that would make you believe that they are giving just the facts, but I have notices the vitriol towards someone else product, the snide knocking of an alternative product. At the same time the audience can be very much in awe of that person and don't seem to question some of the statements, like boutique caps for audiophiles they just line up like lemmings and drink the Kool Aid!

Not hyenas, but seekers after truth! Something boils in my guts when I see someone selling ordinary stuff at an expensive price, or useless stuff at any price, or being paid to write complete garbage in magazines. Of course, it's a free market but at least the gullible punters ought to be warned. Sadly, the warnings are often brushed aside by fanboys, who then accuse us of being nasty because we rain on someone's parade. Those of us in the UK of course have to be careful what we say, but people in the free world can say that rubbish is rubbish.

DF96,
I thought you had the same freedom to what you want as long as it isn't slanderous. I thought the UK was still a democracy following parliamentary law? Truth is always a defense, and opinion stated as such has never been a prosecutable offense.

But Big Brother is watching and that is now the US government.

And how would disclosure of this person's occupation change anything? People who like stories, like stories.

At the Axpona show I attended, I listened politely as a cable salesman explained to a couple of eager audiophiles that he used to always have systems that cost at least $200,000 in his home, but these cables are so good that he now uses them and is content with a $40,000 system. Despite the fact that he was a salesman for this product, these guys ate it all up and couldn't wait to get a set. Perhaps I'm being a bit unfair for believing this, but I strongly feel that no explanation of basic physics would have dissuaded these guys from dropping thousands of dollars on a pair of 1 meter RCA cables.
