I am simply posting what I feel.
My feeling is that I feel discredited, abused and threatened by Polyphony on this thread as well as the other thread by Joey Townley.

Here is my advice for you, Schubertslieder.

1) Post what you feel all you want. But do it in one post so as not to wreck the thread.

2) When you refer to members, make sure to spell their usernames right.

3) If you feel abused, by all means report me to a moderator. I can assure you that they will agree with everything I have said on this thread and the other one regarding your behavior.

In fact, I hope one of the moderators will contact you about this issue sometime in the near future. I am getting progressively more annoyed with each meaningless post you make.


Regards,

Polyphonist

Also, wouldn't it be a nicer route to just continue your conversation in PMs? It seems like half of the threads in the last few days are devoted to Polyphonist and Schubertslieder one upping each other or Polyphonist and someone else one upping each other. It's a bit narcissistic to think that half to two thirds to all of each thread needs to be you proving your manhood to one another. What about if you took a running count of what percentage of the thread is devoted to your retorts and counter retorts, then if it's over 10%, just message that person directly? That might make the rest of the community a bit more satisifed.

If he's bothering you, and I can well imagine he is, ignore it and respond to other people's posts.

When counting the percentages of posts on the thread made by Schubertslieder and I, the discrepancy is remarkable. On one hand you have strings of posts making one point at best, or usually no point at all. On the other you have a few sensible posts from me scattered through the mix, each devoted to a different attempt to get him to see how he is spoiling the forum for the rest of us and repeatedly asking him to stop.

OP - Congrats on getting your piece performed. That must be awesome for you!

[a demonstration. You see what I did there?]

I understand, but I should not have to deal with a poster like this on a supposedly well-moderated, sophisticated forum.

The advice was directed at me, not you. Your posts do not warrant such a civil reply.

I am leaving this thread for the time being.

FYI...locking this and another thread.

I have to start teaching soon and don't really have the time or interest to go back through and figure out who started it or who's at fault.

All I know is that two people have ruined two threads, so I'm locking them. Regardless of who's fault it was, either could have ended it and chose to keep the nonsense going.

Since no one was willing to step forward and stop the madness, I'm happy to oblige...
