I didn't mean to say you said they were harmed. In fact, I didn't say
you said they were harmed. I said that you were talking about users who
didn't know about replaygain (you did talk about them) then *I* said
that in that situation they would still be harmed (since not knowing
about replaygain, they wouldn't know to turn it off). Under your
reasoning (that they often don't know about it) *I* say that they would
be harmed (if having replaygain on is / can be harmful).
Sorry for the lack of clarity, but I didn't think you would extend it to
the point where you assumed I was putting words into your mouth.
