Default Display nothing instead of -inf

Negative Infinity is a cool name for a band, but why advertise it on every silent channel? It's just clutter and means less than nothing to most people. Say something when there's something to say, I say.

We have to measure the level.
"-inf" is a value of level.
*Nothing* is not something any tech guy should use to make other get him seriously.

I'm just saying that I don't see a reason to display -inf on every silent track. It means it measured the level and there wasn't one. So just don't display anything on the meter. That would make it more obvious for tracks that actually do have audio signal on them.

That's exactly why. If it shows nothing, you don't know, if it's a problem with the theme, Reaper, a bug, etc.
-inf is clear in what it means and there's no question about that, no possible confusion.

I agree with removing useless stuff, but this one is as important as any other noise-level and I would not want this to be removed at all.
