Re: Can 'audio watermarks' be banned...?

you make a good argument for us not allowing remasters here anymore.

we've discussed it and I don't think we really want to ban them, outright...

Would anyone have a problem if we added a rule that no seeder may add audio to a recording that was not captured at the time it was recorded?
