Continuing to read my posts and responding with /ignore doesn't seem like ignoring me at all.

I guess you don't understand how off-topic all this is, how much you're demonstrating everything I said about your conduct, and how completely inappropriate your actions are for a moderator.

Indeed. In fact, Chopin says...

"Both our asses," huh? I hope Chopin would be discerning enough to go medieval on an abusive moderator rather than his victim. If not ... well, there's a reason for the saying about why one shouldn't argue with a fool.

I'm beginning to question your qualifications as a moderator. Grow up.

That's the last thing I have to say to you on the subject.



Q.E.D., and I hope it's the last thing you ever have to say to me about any subject.

If you can tell me to "get off my high horse" in public, how come I couldn't tell you what to do in private without you crying to Frank about it?

I wonder how high your horse was when you addressed me with phrases like "Nice try," "Face it" and "Guess what?" the last time you picked a fight with me—and how high it is now saying things like "Don't primp yourself."

What's "presumptuous," in my opinion, is you telling me about "my job" considering your tenuous grasp of the responsibilities, authority and circumspection appropriate to a moderator.

I said it out in the open.

I don't have anyone on ignore status. You can't really put annoying posters on ignore when you're a moderator. You generally have to read the stupid and/or dysfunctional things they post.


The point is we can't ignore you, when you say stupid and/or dysfunctional things. Your behavior in this thread is completely inappropriate for a moderator.

Maybe you'd wish to repeat what we did once before when you insulted me "out in the open": I'll send you a PM telling you I think of you, you can run to Frank again and have him threaten to ban me, I'll PM you again with an apology and an earnest effort to have a dialogue about behavior in this forum ... and instead of accepting my apology or even acknowledging my attempt to mend fences and move on amicably, you can simply snub me and ignore it completely again.

It's rare to encounter such graceless and spiteful behavior, but there you have it.

And now the malevolent moderator gets a free pass to use terms like petulant, argumentative, high horse, annoying, stupid and/or dysfunctional to refer to me.

It's mind-boggling!

It could be the start of a gender war (Yikes!) ...

For me IMHO (sorry about that, moderator!) to suggest that only a woman scorned could possibly grow so bitter in fanning a flame-war against a dodgy moderator, who should know better than to "answer back" to a raspy prima donna ... please chaps, let sleeping dogs lie and let’s hear more about good old Chopin.

PS The dame does not have a monopoly on Chopin works ... I do!! (but don’t tell the others).

Oh, isn't that amusing, btb! But then you probably think that all gay men are really bitter, scorned women who talk like raspy prima donnas.

However, you may inadvertently have named why the "dodgy moderator" has attacked me repeatedly: maybe he just doesn't like that BIG GAY AVATAR.

Your strategy of blaming the victim is outdated and offensive, so keep your misogyny and homophobia to yourself. Go practice your sightreading or something.
