Fair enough answer Brian. At least the three of us who have broached specifically the last post written by Jim agree with his remarks.
And not to "wake a sleeping dog"...and without any replies required but always welcomed in my posts...Would it be fair to say that each of us would consider our remarks on just this specific topic each be considered as fair and accurate? We each have had our own unique experience with Line 6 as a company and with the products we each own.
Under such varied conditions, who would "judge" what is a fair and accurate assessment either positive or negative? None of us have the "legal" (term being used very loosely in this context) right to judge one another, but since we certainly all feel very strongly and passionately about our feelings just on this single topic...who really could judge? This is just not an easy thing to do 100% objectively in my opinion.
And as a courtesy to you Brian, I'm mentioning that I've changed by settings to stop receiving emails from all general group discussions about the POD HD, Vetta, POD X3, Variax, JTV, DT50/25, and all other related software. I now only receive notices from just a few select threads I've bookmarked. If I don't see it - I can't react to it. I'm going to try the ignorance is bliss theory and see how that works out for my personal stress level regarding Line 6 and the "Group"/"Gang"/"Mafia" personalities as much as my notification preference change might help.
I'll stick with my original thinking of still offering assistance in private instead of public. Whatever you might think of my product knowledge, or how I structure my answers...anyone who chooses to can always write and ask for help if they wish to contact me directly in case they were not able to get answers on these many forums. I have hope that one of my projects I'm working on with Craig Anderton combining our collective knowledge and experience with Line 6 gear will become what I hope.
Luckily for me, he doesn't have any trouble understanding me in written form, spoken form, or have any problem with any aspect of what's inside my brain and how it comes out. I especially appreciate his understanding of my level of passion about the gear I've bought over the years since 2003 or was given during my time starting 2008 as a formerly well-appreciated Beta Tester of Line 6 products. He, unlike the current (if any or all are still employed there currently since the L6 names I used to see with whom I've had problems with never appear anymore in any of the forums) Line 6 personnel, seems to actually think positively about my passion for music and the equipment I use to create it. He's much like myself in that regard about his level of passion in anything he puts his mind to doing. He has quite a significant pedigree that he earned over his lifetime. I'm honored he thinks enough of my thoughts, methods of working, and discoveries of all aspects of just the "Dream Rig" set up to ask to work with me.
