I once counted the number of settings related to secure ripping and EAC had fewer.

EAC can be operated at the default settings and work perfectly well. We only recommend that perhaps two or three be changed which are practically non-essential (EDIT: Of those we "recommend" in the wiki, I actually only agree to deviate on one that is not solely based on user preference: use of null samples on CRC calculations; the rest are perfectly fine). Total time configuring is easily less than 10 minutes (perhaps less than 5). Each program has tests that can be performed to in order to choose the proper settings. Each program has settings buried in multiple places (more than one executable in the case of dBpa). Each program has caveats. At least EAC has float-over help to explain each setting.Regarding posts going in the trash, read TOS #7. FWIW the post I think you're whining about wasn't from this thread.
