Right you are!   First off, what difference does it make if someone
has a huge collection of music if I don't happen to like those bands?
A larege collection of music is only meaningful to someone who enjoys
all those bands.  Second,  who cares if anyone on this list buys
discs by 'new' groups?  This IS a HW/BOC list, fer crisesakes!  A
taste for 'new' material is relevent here only tangentially...
