I think you're being unfair. I would like to see more discussion of mixing techniques too, and there is a clear difference between that and recording techniques, which seems to focus more on tracking, in all its incarnations. No need to be so aggressive.

+1 on a mixing techniques category

Cheers!

This could be parsed further:

Or, instead of arguing semantics, we could actually discuss mixing.

Well, essentially the way I look at it: you've got a bunch of knobs and faders and controllers. They each do something. So what you're after is the combination of settings that make the music sound really good. There's absolutely no way to predict, beforehand, what this arrangement will look like, and it will be completely different, song to song.

So the process to apply is one of incremental experimentation, paying careful attention to the results you're getting and the improvements in clarity and force and groovability and then realizing when you're at the peak of perfection-- and then stop and print it.

In terms of being nit-picky, I find it incredibly ironic that this wasn't posted in the Tape Op Message Board forum.

I think we need a "Things You Can Learn From An Imaginary Professional" forum, moderated by @?,*???&?.

Dude. I hate Chuckles. I much prefer Gummy Bears, but really can't stand sweets overall, although the occasional piece of chocolate is nice...
