I miss my gal Pogo. This place ain't quite the same since she took a break from posting. cry

And the dueling duo of Nyire and kbk could always be counted on for some fireworks. tiki

Even Gyro's gone missing.

Where have all the spicy ones gone?

It's hard to get a good fight going over the worst piece, the greatest waltz, the hardest piece. smile

So, whom do you miss, and why?

Pogorelich disagreed with almost all my posts. I'll never forget her classic line to me: "Stop doing exercises all day and play some actual music! Good god!"

I didn't know she was female.

To mention three who were not banned:

I miss whippenboy (so knowledgeable and so pleasant about it), harmosis (saved me the bother of trying to answer any harmony question on the composers' forum) and schubertian (how could I not love a Schubertian?). frown

I only joined January of this year, so I'm not too familiar with how someone can get banned from a piano forum. What is there to get viscious over?

Yes, I still think about whippenboy once in a while and wonder how things are going with him. I imagine very well.

This surprises me a bit, but I also have sometimes missed Auntie Lynn's acerbic and direct manner, on those occasions when I think she might have said something that needed saying.

I do not miss Nyiregyhazi, whose arguing seemed somewhat pathological to me.

I miss Angelina, but Nyir and KK not so much. I agree with wr's assessment of Nyiregyhazi, and Klutz just seemed like a guy who would talk about technique all of the time....and then subsequently post a video that displays a technique which is insufficient to play anything close to the advanced repertoire he was commenting on.

I don't miss Ed weiss, the new-age guy.

I miss Jdhampton (did I get his name right??) I always wondered what happened to him after he started a thread about the technical issues in Debussy's Pagodes which received (unwarranted) scolding from "veterans" of the forum.

Well, certainly Pogo anyway. smile

And KBK....maybe. Nyir, if he could have learned to be a slightly different person, which I still wouldn't rule out.

BTW Gyro seems to be on a temp ban. If my math is right, for better or worse he might be due back soon.

You're right -- I don't. I put it the way I did because I thought I saw it mentioned that it was temporary, but if so, that could have been just a guess. If it's more than temporary.....well, I've made it known that I had always suspected he was fraudulent to at least some degree, although 'the powers that be' apparently weren't much considering it so. If they did come to see him that way, they didn't indicate it, but I sure wouldn't be against it.

Why would Gyro be on a temporary ban? One might disagree with his posts, but he didn't break any house rules... in this forum at least. Perhaps in a different forum? But I hardly ever open those.

I miss Fleeting Visions. He seemed like a cool bloke and we PM'd quite a bit. I also miss Horowitzian. He certainly knew his favourite pianist's recordings and also had a terrific knowledge of Apple products.

Jason: Some of us (especially me) strongly suspected that there was more about him that was objectionable than met the eye. I've said plenty about it on the site -- some have said that I said it too much and too many times -- so I won't repeat it.

About Horowitzian: I had the impression that he (mostly) left because he started his own 'competing' site and was putting more of himself into that (understandably). Some people have thought it was just that he became busy with other things and went in other directions.....

My impression is that he is indeed very busy with other endeavors, and good on him. His 'competing' site hasn't had a hit since March.

Pogo, I believe, is still around. She doesn't post though. I say this because I myself missed her and looked up the user list. I looked on the 24th of August. The last time she was online then was the 23rd of August. So I assume she's still around and lurks quite a bit (but I don't know why she would log in to lurk.. I guess one would log in to get the bolds on the unread threads. I log in all the time before I read all the threads).

Yes, Angelina hasn't been gone all that much really. I remember her post last week or so... I do miss thejourney though (I think it was him... :-/) who got banned eventually. KBK is not much of a problem for me... smile

And I also kinda miss Sam and RogerW (from the less pianists-more composers)

What beats me is working out what it takes to get banned ... do you have to use swear words or drop your pants to qualify?

All the chappies in quarantine (or whatever) had never darkened my door, so it comes as a surprise to hear of all those “criminals” behind bars.

But then I’m such an innocent, law-abiding, dull, pompous twit.

In the past, it's usually gone something like this:

Be profane and/or launch insults at other members.
Ignore warnings.
Get a temporary suspension.
Do it all over again.
Ignore more warnings.
Continue arguing and insulting people.
Be a troll and bait your enemies.
Respond to the next warning by telling one of the admins to "lighten up", how it was "all a joke" and "in good fun" and how everybody is "way too serious."
Continue arguing, insulting, and baiting.
Respond to the final warning by telling the admins to "**** off", "kiss my ***", or "go to ****."
Get banned.
Send an email to the webmaster or through friends posting about how your popularity and helpfulness over the years gives you right to act like a total ******* (several expressions fit those 7 letters - any are appropriate) and that we've been totally unfair. Also be sure to complain about how some other user deserves the same or equal punishment because they're just as bad. At this point, people usually take one of two paths - either turn into a bratty 5 year old and throw a fit about how life is unfair, or act like one of those irresponsible 20-somethings that give you the "aw shucks it won't happen again just give me another chance" routine.

LOL @ Kreisler... laugh I've lived through that exactly from Franks position (as an admin). It's impressive that most people go through pretty much the same story! grin...

Other than that I would imagine that stretching the rules wouldn't be too nice either! (can you imagine someone continuously posting a 'competitive' website?... Difficult really. I mean, yeah, you probably can do it a couple of times, probably with the tollerance of the admins/mods but continuously? Yikes!)

I have to say that PW is quite light in terms of banning though. I've seen MUCH worst!

I would bet that when you say that, you are thinking of just a few you liked, instead of the whole bunch of them. To me, banning just makes sense, and if people can't behave after sufficient warnings, well, tough. I've seen how it goes in forums where nobody gets banned, and it is not worth it, IMO. There are always some sociopaths trying wreck the place, basically, and sometimes they succeed.

Definitely miss Janus, sotto voce, Fleeting Visions.

FWIW, PW is a great community, and I keep coming back for the warmth, intelligence, and spunkiness of many awesome members, as much as (if not more than) for the actual talking points. There are many here I'd love to buy a beer.

*Cheers*

Nasty complications with sotto voce (I'm now over that), but -as posted earlier- I do miss Fleeting Visions. Neat guy, incredibly intelligent, and great octaves. Wonder what he is up to these days.

Janus is another situation. We got along so well -many great PMs- but he turned against me when he found out that I didn't worship at the altar of Mahler. Okay to dislike Bach or Mozart, but Mahler? A sin for which I should rot in helll. (Does any other composer inspire such a messianic devotion?)

Thanks to the 'other' Jason I have since changed my views -I LOVE the 6th symphony- but Janus never forgave me for the transgression.

Wow, interesting guy that Fleeting Visions. I just checked out some of his last posts and apparently he started a PhD program in biophysics at age 18 or 19 and then was on a year's medical leave of absence. While working on his PhD he was also studying with a piano performance professor.

In my opinion there's no excuse for cyberbullying, no matter how helpful or popular you are. There is a line between being frank and simply being mean, and people who get banned here cross that line.

He came in here with a machine gun and killed 4 or 5 posters so we had to let him go.

I believe he was involved in some verbal bullying jousting, told a moderator to muck off, got banned, came back as chercherchopin, was found out, told everyone to suck it, and then was summarily executed.

How 'bout me? Nary a mention. Maybe because I'm only near dead. I still post about once every two weeks. Four five years ago I was writing lengthy posts twice a week, and two sentence comments twice a day.

Be nice to be mentioned amongst the dead, even if I'm not quite there yet. I don' even know who half these people are who are so missed.

Good news, Tomasino! I never considered you dead OR missing! Yet. I see your posts, and always benefit from them in some way. grin Piano World is a slow board. I usually consider a regular contributor missing if they haven't appeard in some forum or another after about a month! eek

I don't miss Ed weiss, the new-age guy.

I miss Jdhampton (did I get his name right??) I always wondered what happened to him after he started a thread about the technical issues in Debussy's Pagodes which received (unwarranted) scolding from "veterans" of the forum.


Good to know I was missed! I ended up taking a break from most things computer for part of the summer. Went through a pretty nasty breakup, so it was a very welcome change of pace. Took some summer classes, spent a lot of time in the practice rooms. Soul searching, reading a lot of new music, you know the usual fun things.

Aww sick, you're back!! Glad to see that you're learning Pagodes (a PHENOMENAL PIECE). I'm planning to learn the rest of the Estampes set this fall!

Ditto on both.

I was just wondering about Canonie just a few days ago. Looks like the last time she checked in here was 25 July. I hope her new piano is the happy reason for her absence.

Yes, it would not be Canonie's first self-imposed extended absence. Probably went back to nature for a while... Maybe hand harvesting tea leaves or something... smile

They were both 'different ways at different times,' as were most or all the others that were banned. I think our different takes on them depend on what posts from them we happened to see or not, and how we happen to feel about their particular different ways of being different.

I never minded Pogo; she was bright, dedicated, and smart as a whip, and simply forthright about her opinions. However, her attacks were never personal. She just was up front about what she thought.

The others? Good riddance, AFAIC.

Why would Gyro be on a temporary ban? One might disagree with his posts, but he didn't break any house rules... in this forum at least. Perhaps in a different forum? But I hardly ever open those.

I miss Fleeting Visions. He seemed like a cool bloke and we PM'd quite a bit. I also miss Horowitzian. He certainly knew his favourite pianist's recordings and also had a terrific knowledge of Apple products.


Hey!


I'm so incredibly busy with other stuff I've just had to cut off a lot of what I used to do on the internet. Sadly that meant some of my "pet project" websites. frown


I'm starting piano lessons again on Sept. 5 though, after taking the summer off. I needed the break in a bad way, and I'm excited to get started again.

I've been into photography of late too; might share some pics later if I have time.

~H

PS - Jason, I'll send you a PM tonight.

I was always taught, that you get a "bar of soap" in the mouth if you miss use the English language! but . . . miss pogo sure had a "mouth" that could spit out some choice words! I certainly don't miss that! Not that I visit this forum much, but she seemed to love to celebrate with "booze" getting "hammered" after completing some concert or accomplishment! I would find buying booze rather pricyee!

Just think that if someone has to use "choice" words must be lacking a vocabulary! The english dictionary has some very impressive words that I think this generation is lacking! the word I hear girls this day and age using more and more is the "f" word! And it don't impress me much & really, I would hope it doesn't impress men much!

Just my thoughts!

Oh Diane, thank you! The bar-of-soap; I haven't about that 'cure' since I was a young child, and my grandmother used to administer it.

I'd think we'd be using up a lot more soap these days. And who knows, maybe some mouths would clean up.

In my Sunday school days, we had a whole lesson (and by the preacher in person, too!) that included the idea that the words we said did not matter so much as the thought or intention behind them. How we were thinking, or looking at things, was what we needed to clean up.

What a nice economy of technique. No preacher, no matter how learned, could have listed all the bad words we weren't supposed to say. And of course, so many new ones have been invented since.

My grandmother had more than bars of soap in her arsenal. She would not only take a switch to a naughty child, she would send us out to the privet hedge ourselves, to bring her one. Then we got our legs switched. A little sting, yes; nothing cruel or mean, or out-of-proportion to our little misdeeds. She was just crazy about her grandchildren, and loved us enough to correct us at an early stage. It is only these many years later that I've appreciated the strong protection which she wrapped around us.

I was never even a little mad at her for this. I knew love, even back then. She was definitely of the "love the sinner and hate the sin" school.

There are other expressions I haven't heard much since those days, which I miss. "I'll snatch you bald!" for example. (No; it was just a saying, no one ever did it.) They got a lot more mileage out of expressions like that, than young "ladies" do out of 'the f-word' today.

Well Jeff, I'm a piano teacher & a sunday school teacher (Baptist . . hope I SPELT that right Mark C . . . grin )
and I'm pretty sure (could guarantee it) that parents would NOT put up with me using the "f" word! . . . in the presence of their children!

Right Mark C . . . ?

Just for the record, I can't even "think" saying the "f" word in my mind cause I'd have to get the soap out, & start rinsing! smile

My mother was into that too. grin

For a while we had some kind of green soap in the house, in addition to the usual plain white Ivory, and so my mom would switch off. One time when she was going to administer the 'cure' but wasn't feeling too extreme about it, she asked me which kind I minded less. I said the white. She knew I was lying and so she gave me the white. ha

Good job!

(I mean, I think it's actually "Oops" but I suppose Opps is an alternate form.) ha


u r rite! . . . grin


You criticize me for my choice of words, and yet you're obviously too lazy to type out "you are right"? What's "rite"? (of Spring, perhaps?)

I have an English minor, lady, and I've only been speaking English for 7 years. I think my vocabulary is just fine. And if I want to throw some 'delicate' words once in a while, I will. And if I want to have a drink or two after a recital, I freakin' will. I don't need people like you to tell me how to behave. Okay?

Damn, at least I'm good at what I do. I don't have to modify myself for whoever's liking.

...

One of the reasons I've discontinued participating in these forums as much as I used to.

[censored].

(couldn't help it, hehe)

Btw Diane, your English is terrible. I'm not a native speaker but I'm sure I can write (and possibly speak) better English than you. So do stop to think for a bit before you start accusing people of "misssss"using English or whatever. As for the rest of what you said about Pogo, she has given you a sufficient response, so I'll stop at that.

Sweet Jesus, do you really think I swear all the time?

There is a time and place. I only do it when it's appropriate - like hanging out with close friends, or, I don't know - when I'm trying to prove a [censored] point, perhaps.

Oh, you know what - I shouldn't even be explaining myself to you.

I think she decided to concentrate on communicating with a group of teachers on Facebook.

I remember Betty. I kinda liked her.

Haven't seen Andromaque around in while... hope the hiatus is temporary.
