much agreed.
there is no excuse ever to be using a 31 band graphic eq except for live 
rocknroll shows under severe time pressure, to prevent and/or react to 
learning to use a parametric is not that hard, and people who believe 
the curve they are seeing on a graphical are probably beyond help anyway...

check out fons' FIL, or the lv2fil graphical frontend written by nedko 
arnaudov. four parametric filters, does the job fine, only the UI knobs 
are a bit hard to use.
no HPF/LPF unfortunately, but there are other plugins for that.
