I think it should just have an arm reach out of the computer monitor
and hit them on the head with a bat.
( A nerf bat of course )
In all honesty, its only giving the codec a bad name to people who
didn't bother to even learn about it for one second. Setting these
kind of people strait is a lifes work for many a thinking man, but it
is not my battle.

>> I also agree with you on these points you mention. If you guys are familiar on how the piracy groups work on the internet, you are aware that they have "releases" with their names on it. In the piracy "scene", some groups are competing on getting the first release out, and could only be beaten by another group releasing another higher quality release. Some groups (or even individuals) are releasing their stuff that is being "ripped off" another release, and they transcode the original release (mp3 320kbps for example) to a flac release (that really isn't a flac).
