Discuss a review. Provide constructive feedback. Talk to the industry.

Yeah but by your standard he still prostituted himself, ...

I mean it just don't get more preposterous, heck the stuff you listed (quote below) seem almost tame compared to the Belt "Photos in Fridge" tweak. LOL

"Subjectivists, meanwhile, sometimes seem to intentionally hold themselves up for ridicule. A few audio writers, especially for the online 'zines, seem eager to prostitute themselves for the latest preposterous product—the Intelligent Chip, the Shakti Hallograph Soundfield Optimizer, the Machina Dynamica Brilliant Pebbles, the Marigo Audio Lab Dots, the Tice Clock. Meanwhile, some prominent industry folks have consistently failed, in my opinion, to maintain a sufficiently skeptical posture toward such products. It doesn't help that in audio there has been a long tradition—a dogma, even—of "trusting your ears," despite abundant evidence from neuroscience and cognitive psychology that our ears and other senses, though supremely acute, are supremely unreliable."
