I am a relatively new member, and maybe it's the holiday season, however there seems to be a few short tempers recently. I hope we can all share ideas and respectfully interact. I really enjoy the fellowship and information available here.
Best to ALL, thetandyman.

heck, Norbert, I've been here since last March, but I truly like this site. I'm not interested in the number of posts I achieve, but I want to check it out every night after I return from work. I am still learning. AND I enjoy all sorts of piano music, pianos, stories, and advice.
Best to you as well!

BTW, Norbert, I think Vancouver is paradise. I have spent some time there during travels. I have been in the auto business for many years, and have handled fine autos like Rolls, Bentley, etc. I have never been anywhere in the world, including Great Britain, where I have seen more top ledge cars. Vancouver is like New York, but without the riff-raff. Finest shopping, sights, and restaurants. Not to mention movie filming sites.

I'm sorry to have offended anyone on this great website, but I have asked Frank to remove me permantly. I wish all my friends and posters the best.
Thanks all, thetandyman, and sorry if I ruffled any feathers.

That's a little over the top, isn't it?

Just relax and take it easy. Have a break from PW for a while if you need to. But don't burn your bridges.

smile C'mon now tandyman, can't see as how you've offended anyone in this thread.
Seems rather dramatic to just up and say you're leaving permanently.

You could have just stopped coming for a while and seen how you feel in a few months. Saying you're leaving and asking to have all trace of yourself deleted is just overkill. Relax mate! There's no big deal in this thread.

Hey, all my friends on PW, sorry to depart, but I just realized that I hate pianos, but suddenly love making macrame wall hung owls. Who doesn't love them.
I have felt that I was making statements that were questioned with animosity, or rebuffed in an unfriendly way. I wish you all the best!

I've just noted some healthy agreement and disagreement. Good to hear other people's opinions etc on piano related topics. And because there is variability between models and even within a model of piano, we will all see it differently. And we're all probably looking for something different in a piano.

Wouldn't it be boring if we all owned Fazioli 308 pianos.

And even worse if we all had macrame wall hung owls.

I wish you the best thetandyman.

I’ve enjoyed your participation and contributions here.

The human psyche is a strange and mysterious thing… sometimes we get up on the wrong side of the bed and our disposition and attitude is bent and altered from the norm. Sometimes we are just in a foul mood or don't feel well and seek any opportunity to lash out or snark at someone. Sometimes we may get mean and hateful all of sudden for no good reason. I try to avoid all those situations; but, inevitably, even a mild mannered, gentle spirited person like me can become sarcastic and rude at times. smile

Typically, the trouble makers here don’t leave on their own accord… Hey, even if you have offended anyone here, you’ve apologized.

If you decide to stay, great… if you decide to depart forever, best wishes.

Rick

I have to say that I find PW to be one of the most friendly and helpful sites I have ever participated in. I am a huge baseball fan and signed up for one of the discussion sites because I like to talk about baseball and my wife is not a fan. However, every time I wrote anything at all, someone would reply with insulting comments. It was like everyone hated everyone else and wanted to beat them somehow. I don't understand it at all. You could say, I think Derek Jeter will have another good season next year after his ankle heals, and five people would write that I am a moron, or something worse. I quit participating. Piano World is not like that at all. Sure, sometimes there are disagreements, and even a little heat once in a while, but overall it is very cordial and professional. Yay PW!

I hope you did not take offense to my post, tandyman. I was being silly. Imagine it being said with a Brooklyn accent.

My family is from Brooklyn. I take offense at the incorrect spelling of "fuggedabowdit." It's clearly posted on the sign in and out of Brooklyn. Webster should incorporate it in his next book. He's a little behind.. I've made him an offer he can't refuse, but he's been slow to accept.

Anyway, if that is why tandyman left, then I understand. If it was over the LSD, then I am completely in the dark.

Cheers and happy drinking.. laugh
