I can see your point.
Though I don’t a thread like this would detract from any of the vendors on sale now.
Maybe it doesn’t “detract” from them, but it comes off as exceedingly rude.
To use the concert analogy—how would you like it if you were up on stage, doing your act, and I, out in the audience, stood up and said, “Oh, well, that’s cool and all, but I"m waiting for So-and-So!”?
As a performer, I don’t think you’d like it very much. And as an audience member, I would be engaging in behavior that would be considered exceedingly rude and inconsiderate, not only to the performer onstage, but to the other audience members. In a real-life concert, that kind of behavior would likely cause me to be escorted out of the auditorium by the security personnel.
Sorry if we caused offence…it didn’t occur to me that a currently-featured PA might view this discussion that way.
For the record I own a blondie9999 product and I’m likely to buy more, just can’t afford everything I want at this time. As far as I’m concerned all PAs are great and while each of us may have our favorites, it’s not a matter of some doing better work than others, but that some products are more needed in my runtime than others, given my goals and what I own already.
This is my first PA sale so I wasn’t aware that nearly all active PAs participate (though I might have guessed as much). That’s good to know.
