Repeatedly defended arguments with personal attacks.

There are genuine advantages to recording and editing in 24 bit, specifically due to available headroom and combined noise floor (if you mix a bunch of 16 bit dithered files together). For playback, 24 bit offers no benefit though.
If you edit just one file or two files or whatever, 16 bits is more than enough. 24 bits allows you to be incredibly sloppy. Working with 16 bits should be well within the capabiliites of any professional recordist.
