My quote specifically mentioned Spotify, Beats and Apple Music, and while it didn't mention other services like Tidal directly, those also exist. It specifically applied to more than just Apple music - I looked for a quote that encompassed more than just Apple (I assume you actually read the quote and/or article and didn't just look at the URL and draw your conclusions?)
I'm also amazed that you're putting so much stock in a slashdot UI thing that I had totally forgotten existed in the ten years since I started using this site. I have nothing against you personally here, but you sure seem to be very sensitive about how you're perceived. I'm not the one here trying to "evade" the topic. I'm also not the one trying to make this personal.
You made an assumption, I corrected it with a sourced quote that covered multiple music streaming services, then also performed a network test on one of them (I don't have accounts for the others) to confirm that the advertised streaming rate was accurate.
This is all on the back of a story about Neil Young pulling his music from all streaming services over his belief that they are lower quality than any other music distribution system invented since he was alive, including AM radio and 8 track tape.
I'm not sure how you can draw the conclusion that I "[don't] know something about" this topic. If you can point out where I've made a factual error worthy of classifying my comments as "ignorant noise" then I'm all ears.
