Personal preferences are fine. But aren't the mods at this forum espousing to be format-neutral? Certainly one would expect nothing less regarding their conduct and remarks given that they've stated the goal of format neutrality from the site itself.
Real world benefit of lossless audio over DD+: None that a consumers ear can notice. It's a tech spec that looks great. I'd prefer all titles had lossless so the arguement would be pointless.
As to personal preferences of moderators: It's their opinion and they have that right. On the whole they are neutral.
