I was on the phone arguing with Discreet management and lobbying as best as I could for a change of heart at Discreet. Trust me, I know the inside story on Discreet Edit pretty well, Andy. I even had some of the Discreet brass who are no longer there tell me to kill the Discreet Edit forum in no uncertain terms. I wouldn't. I only did it after it became so ugly a forum that it made no sense to keep it here any longer. The last straw came when my son was killed and not a one of them could offer a kind word. In fact, they had to bust my chops that week and at that point I was done with it all. Discreet made a business decision that was a sound one based on the circumstances. The only bad karma I see in it was guys like Jonathan van Clute who bought one within a few weeks of its demise. That one broke my heart to see. The rest likely amortized out their purchase many times over and that's not bad in business.

You and others may disagree...
