I checked this out too, and it is disturbing. It's also, as Patrick
suggested, an example of a likely scenario in the near future as Linux
audio apps become increasingly sophiticated and usable under more
professional conditions. It's true that there's little that can be done
to avoid this scenario, but I believe that community opprobrium (i.e.
verbal torches and pitchforks) can do some good in such a case. Alas,
eBay doesn't make it easy for a non-member to add a comment to a sale item.
I'm thinking some not very nice thoughts about Luminousity right now...
