Re: Why hate replicator????

It seems that there are a small number of people who prefer non-replicated food and beverages, but that the ordinary citizen either cannot taste the difference or hasn't had enough experience with non-replicated material to care (or a measure of both).

The explanation of the technology suggests that it should taste no different than the "real thing." I don't really believe single-bit errors could affect the taste. However, people being people, it is no surprise at all that there would be some who claimed to be able to taste the difference and were likely to give a long speech about how expert they were in the appreciation of "real" food at the drop of a hat and to anyone who'd listen.
