[Andrew Kimery] "They do, I just don't think you should expect to influence anyone that's already made their mind up one way or the other. For the people that have already decided that X sucks or Avid sucks or Ford sucks or the PS4 sucks (pick your flame war) there's nothing anyone can say/do to change their mind."

I agree. But that presumes that the class of "editors who have already made up their minds" is the audience I care about. I don't really.

I've said before that a LOT of people simply lurk here trying to get valid information. So after years and legions of people "knee-jerking" on-line about how horrible X was (or still is in some cases!) I'm simply going to stay around to argue for the other point of view. .

I know I won't change the opinions of those who simply won't consider a change. But for every one of them, I suspect there are hundreds or maybe even thousands of editors who might.

I think like this because I've actually met or communicated with quite a few of them over the past few years - telling me that they would have never considered X if it weren't for voices like mine running against the "conventional wisdom" in the early days.

And they're often the people who now have 3 years of solid experience in X and it's gratifying to see that X is often doing the same thing for them that it's done for me. (make their editing much easier and much more enjoyable!).

That's enough for me.
