Fascinating advise from an entity identifying itself
with such a moniker. If you are cheap, (like me) and
are playing records in v+ condition or less, you can get
by with rotating the needle 180 degrees for a second play.
But, if you leave the needle *in place* for a second play,
by the end of that play it will be building up shoulders,
and the tip, now unseated in the groove, will be
careening from side to side against the groove walls.
By a third play, if you're so deaf that you can tolerate
the degradation in sound quality, you'll be repaid
with a record that has suffered serious damage.
