So you can't believe yourself? I quote you word for word:
I believe most people cannot tell them apart at high bit rates, yes. Again, I've seen the results of quite a few ABX tests and so far I've not seen a positive result. That doesn't mean nobody can tell them apart, I never claimed that. However I don't believe you ('you' was in italics and clearly pointed to me where the rest was in normal font) can. And it's easy to prove me wrong. And if you do, then I'll congratulate you on your remarkable hearing.
So if some claim I was being vitriolic here, it was only in response to the same.
Over and out...
I'm glad you quoted me. Now please go and look up the word "vitriolic".
And if you read the entire quote back to yourself, calmly, you'll see that I believe there is a chance you can.
You see how I used the word "believe"? If I had been absolutist, I would have said "You can't" rather than "I don't believe you can".
I do not personally believe there is a human-audible difference because I have a) tested it myself, scientifically, for my own benefit, and b) never seen a positive result posted. That doesn't mean to say that I am right.
Frog, this was your exact quote:
'However I don't believe you can' - and what gives you the right to believe I can't? To believe that, you'd have to know me. And you simply don't, frog. You just don't like none of us really know each other on these forums.
That was an insult to me plain and simple.

Maths and sheep. There's my entire life right there.
And are they in favour of a fully devolved field system or merely the transfer of more powers from the centralised farm house?
I don't know. It was dark.

No manicin, I don't know you. But I "beleive" you are a male. I "believe" you are about 5ft tall, I "believe" you are about 30 years old, I "believe" you cannot tell the difference between 320 MP3 and WAV.
You see? On all accounts I could be wrong. But for the moment that is what "I believe". I could be proved wrong on the 1st 3 counts by simply seeing you. On the last I can't be proved wrong unless you display that you can.
Either way, it wasn't an insult. I'm sorry if you misunderstood the intended meaning (and challenge).
“Out beyond ideas of wrong and right, there is a field.
I'll meet you there."
Ok frog, so by your logic you would not feel insulted in the least if I hypothetically say
'I believe Frog is an a**** h*****'?
What I really believe is that sometimes you should watch your wording...

I'm confused. Which bit of "any more of this EDITED and it's locked" did people not understand?
