Logged on to see other's reactions to my discovery yesterday and noticed the thread had been pulled. I just want to apologize if I stepped on any toes. I wasn't trying to be a trouble maker.

No you are fine Robb, I think we all know who the narrow minds are in this regard, and I for one won't be upgrading this year.

I agree with musiclover, in that "you are fine".
You saw what you saw and mentioned it here on the forum.
Perhaps you thought you had missed an announcement.
At this time of year, people are anxious for ANY news on the new release.
Some of us commented on it and PGMusic decided to pull the post.
That's their decision and I respect that.

I didn't expect that post to last long on this forum
and perhaps this one won't either <grin>.

I for one appreciated the post you made.

Geeze Robb, what did you do?? I didn't see any original post. I don't suspect you bit the hand that feeds us - did you?

You can see it all on the BiaB page now
Enjoy the app.

I appreciate your concern RobbMiller. Shows honest character, that you did nothing intentional.

Links were being posted to new products that weren't released yet, Dan; and others got hissy when the threads were pulled.

But that's all under the bridge now.
Make your sound your own!
