It's been a long time since tomasino posted on this forum. Has anyone been in touch with him?

He seems to leave for long stretches. I remember him coming back a few weeks ago, after some months, but then staying only very briefly.

Polyphonist: Because he is a long-time contributor here, and I like reading his posts, so personally I would consider it a loss if he left PW permanantly.

Mark C: Thanks for that perspective.

I see...

Well, he's pretty erratic in his posting patterns, from what I can see.

I'm curious about something, Polyphonist. You've racked up over 1,000 posts in just two months, mostly, I gather, by totally gratuitous posts like the four that you've already made to this thread. The topic doesn't even seem to concern you at all. What's up with that?

What concern of yours is it that I make a lot of posts? You're not being forced to read them.

Of course he's joking. The substance of the joke is: You have a lot of posts. Poly has a lot of posts. ha.

I think the important metric for deciding who wins the Piano Forums isn't total number of posts, but total amount of meaningful content posted. That puts folks like SlatterFan in the running...

I am actually looking forward to reading tomasino's posts here especially because he seemed to have been posting "meaningful contents".

I recall a post by tomasino a week or two ago, under his new name. I don't recall what was the new name, but it was something close to "tomasino." I like reading his thoughtful posts, too.

I think I've posted a fair amount of useful content, considering I've only been here two months.

What is your definition of "useful content"?

If you average out Mark's posts and how long he's been here, you get 14 posts every single day since he's joined.

I'm still around, still thinking sometimes contentious thoughts about music and related topics, and wondering if I should share them with you. It's a serious question.

Over the years I've become a target for several piano world participants who seem to be laying in wait for me whenever I submit a post. They jump up and pounce on me. I've taken one or two of them on from time to time and held my own pretty well--but to no avail. They just lay lower in the ditch. It's not fun, and it can be very time consuming. I end up writing so carefully and slowly, trying very hard to cause no offense--and still be clear in my thought--but cause offense I do. Some of my ideas may be a bubble off center, I know, and sometimes even contentious. Still, I feel we all ought to be given the latitude necessary to express unconventional and difficult to articulate ideas without having to deal with those who are looking to take offense. And so, a number of months ago when I was pounced upon in just such a matter, I simply decided to let Piano World go for awhile.

My good friend Daniel, more familiar to you all as Ridicosolamente, and who I got to know while he was doing grad work here in Minnesota, sent me an email and attached this thread. Thank you, Daniel. It made me think maybe I should let my irritation with those few participants go for awhile, as I have gotten a good deal out of sharing ideas with many of you over quite a few years. I miss that. So, I'll cautiously take a step in and see what happens.

Tomasino
