I repeat you are wrong. I have ripped CDs using iTunes (Windows & Mac),
XLD, EAC, DbPoweramp, as well as the Linux ripper/tagged in Vortexboxe.
I have never manually created any Compilation tags but lo and behold I
have some albums where such tags exist. Where did they come from? The
answer is obvious. They came from the online database that whichever
ripper I used has used to create the tags. I can if you wish find you
examples where the Compilation tag is by our definition correct and also
where it is wrong but I assure you I have never created such tags
manually nor do I believe that iTunes (which I dumped very early on) is
the main culprit. Why do you persist in stating that ripping software
does not create Compilation tags when patently they do?
