see the BOLD above. come on man, knock it off.

wow, where to begin?
first of all, i never said server shouldn't use comp tags! i never
would say such a stupid thing. i have been arguing for a pref to turn
automatic VA logic detection off. i have been using common expected
scenarios to illustrate the rationale behind the request.
secondly, it doesn't matter if its most or not, totally besides the
point i was making, why u 2 focus on that is baffling. after itunes:
WMP, winamp, and EAC, are 3 of the most popular rippers in marketshare.
they don't set comp tags at rip. thats all that needs to be said for
the purposes of my request. its not something to debate or argue over,
its a simple, obvious FACT.
i don't know if dbpoweramp does the comp tag in the free ver or not, and
either way, its irrelevant to the discussion. i've never even heard of
XLD. but i am quite sure those 2 rippers, and Vortexbox represent a
small minority of the marketshare, not that it matters a whit.
