I don't know what you consider as "flaming". It seems that you just don't like anything that is skeptical about software and the reviews promoted on this site, then started making witty remarks out of context against me.
What is "accuse" by your definition? You have equated it in nature with flaming, with the word "it", however, when used in a law court is an "accusation" the same as "flaming" in the internet sense? A parallel to your argument would be if someone beat up another for criticizing him, then went on to say that being criticized is just like being assaulted. And with a wisdom remark "If you dish it(criticism) out, you should be prepared to receive it(assault) in return!"
If a doctor tells a patient "you are getting paranoid about your health, don't worry so much." Is that an "accusation" against the patient that should expect "flaming" from the patient in return?
Sorry, but wtf? Difficult? It's one of the easiest and well written programs i've ever seen! After configuring it and putting the lame.dll somehwere close by it's just popping in a cd, alt-g, click on the mp3 icon and there you have your mp3's!
It's much more of a hassel to use than WMP, to encode ripped music you need to set up a chain of programs, much more difficult than doing it directly with WMP or itunes.
As does EAC automatically.
That was not meant to demonstrate how WMP is superior, that was supposed to question how EAC was superior.
Quality can matter in due time, because the media brand and writing strategy chosen can do wonders for media that is bound to deteriorate over time.
But optical media are supposed to last for decades, even burnt ones. How long has DVD+R existed? For all of the quality brands, such as Verbatim, Sony, HP, etc... the newer formats like DVD+R are still young in their lifespan.
