Just to clarify, this was not a troll, this was spam. All of the
Audacity lists have already received multiple copies of this
message. I blacklisted the source address after the first time it
was posted, and was able to stop most of the remaining messages.
Unfortunately there's no easy way to stop spam to the lists.
One option would be to only let list members post, but this would
annoy people who use an email alias to subscribe to mailing lists.
So, please ignore messages like this. If they become more frequent,
we can talk about possible ways to filter them out.

difficulties with the Doctor's feature and redrawing the wave.
Here's what I came up with after deleting it: :)
Would it be feasible to *not* update the sample, and just provide space (=
remove space) and highlight the changed area?
It would also enable this particular feature to scale nearly to n-minute =
samples. When combined with other features that have the possibility of=20
convoluting the sample, it could greatly speed up production.
It places the burden of updating the wave form in some instances on the u=

It's an interesting idea, and one I hadn't thought of. I've suggested
something else that might work too though (in another post). Hmm. I'll
sleep on it.
