I would also like to say that most of the time I find Jakob2's comments to be quite accurate. He often tends to help steer the discussions in a more scientific direction.
I think you misunderstood Scottjoplin - it was me you said this to & I believe put on your ignore list.

BTW, how is calling me a troll any more helpful than my use of a slithering reference that described a number of people's behavior on here?

But I agree with John C, your input is usually very balanced & helpful.

Okay, that makes more sense. I absolutely put mmerrill99 on my ignore list, likely more than once. That was not a case of only saying I would not communicate without using the ignore list too. That only happened with Joe.

Agreed. He seems to be an expert on listening tests and statistics, though the conclusion always seems to be that nothing can ultimately be proven which makes me think it's just an academic argument to him.

Hehe, nope I thought he said it to Jakob, what would be good about now would be if Jakob could confirm it for me.
Calling you a troll is not meant to be helpful

Yes, I agree about Jakob2 & his comments - I believe he & I are both in pretty much total agreement & have been for a long time, although our posts may differ in tone & approach

Nothing from you is in any way helpful - this is no different.

It might be helpful to those who haven't yet realised that you consistently twist what people say, I don't think there are many left though who haven't got you sussed

Likely overestimating.

So why not let them make up their own minds instead of you incessantly posting the same comment every time I post - are you afraid of some message I'm posting or that people might see that I'm saying exactly the same as Jakob2?

If not an academic argument, then what? One of the prohibited subject type arguments? The subjects may be prohibited, but the type of thinking is not.
