you're right ... the moderators have smelled the cheese, and our pianoworld friends are in trouble... the rules have been posted and our friends have been warned to be civil.


that is too funny [/b]
No Apple, you are completely mistaken. We were the ones asking about the moderators because we were looking for a more civil place to hang out.

You are completely wrong.

:glances at PW user agreement, trembles in fear:

Oh, lordie. I had nothing to do with this. I'm innocent, I tell ya!!! ;\)

Seriously, plays, no matter what Jolly and others might be implying, there's no grand conspiracy and you weren't snubbed. Dang, Curry mentioned not so long ago that Chickgrand could be found there.

Uh oh. Curry, you are in *so* much trouble!

Man, that other forum must be *good* if so many people here feel threatened by it. . . .

I don't know that 'moderation is the key' is the appropriate mantra for Piano World.

I like to play in all different keys.

I prefer to go "unmoderated". I am just not comfortable with "filters".

THIS IS THE SILLIEST AND STUPIDEST. Some of us ended up at another forum and felt comfortable there, for reasons I will not go in to and are not even relevant to my point. Some were current members of this forum and others, who may have been SOLICITED (oh my ****ing god), were FORMER members of this forum.

Jolly happens to discover us there and publicizes it and all of a sudden all of you are going over there and criticizing us for being there, as if it is some capital crime to post on more than one forum.

Then Larry stalks us over there and begins posting links to Piano World threads that make him look good and us look bad -- and we ALL know Larry's well established reputation for editing his own posts to make sure history looks kindly on him.

I have to say Larry, you have stooped to a new low. Your posts there have no clear purpose other than to pollute the pond where we were trying to join another community that would not have been as troublesome for some as this one has been. I have lost whatever respect I had for you (and I assure you that in the beginning that was considerable). Your motives could not be more transparent and there was no reason for you to post what you did other than to seek some kind of twisted revenge on those who left.

You have shown your true colors Larry and no amount of posts here about "setting the record straight" can vindicate you. What you did was mean spirited and ablsolutely intentional. Your kind and gentle and well versed presence here is nothing but a fraud in light of your vindictive crossover.

See the light. Back off. Let some of us leave in peace and go back to your ****ing hole to wallow in your hatred and your insecurity.

YOU are the main problem with Piano World and those who disagree with me are free to stay.

See you around.

It's a pattern, Jack.

If others are having fun, there are individuals here who will do *anything* to break up the party. Even if this means they will pollute something that doesn't even belong to them, where they have no interest.

It's times like these when I wish I were a psychologist. At least then I'd understand the pathology. . . .

Yes, too harsh. But, you have become an amusement all the same. Sometimes you have to take responsibilities for your actions. Sometimes you have to admit mistakes. As big a blowfish as I am sometimes, I do it, I say I'm and idiot sometimes. Larry did it in the last fight. kathy never did. She never could say, "I'm sorry."

And that's when she looses her humanity and becomes the butt of a joke. There is a price to pay for not taking responsibility for your actions.

Now, it's a game. \:\)

Tom, kathy is nowhere in sight. this is me. I have been as forward as any other person here in admitting mistakes. this is not one of them.

And if you somehow find ME amusing, then you have a pretty desperate and empty life, because I assure you, at the core, I am very boring and ordinary. Hardly amusing at all.

All right, why not take your own advice. Now is the time for you to take personal responsibility for being one of the most obnoxious of CR posters, one who has been a major contributing cause to much of the exodus. People are tired of having to fight you and your guileful "wit" whose point is usually thinly veiled insult. They bid you adieu and ask that you respect their wishes to be left alone.

Seven friggin' pages of this nonsense. It's a slow night, I can't believe I read it all.

I'm gonna check out that other board. To devote 7 pages to it, it must be a happenin' place.

get over it, jolly, larry, apple, and the rest of you... you can't control what other people do. too bad![/b]

Excuse me, but you must not be understanding me. So for a third time, I don't care who goes where, who posts where, how they got there, nothing. I'm not trying to control anyone. In fact, I hope that you and Kathy find inner peace as a result of your posting there, and it completely satisfies your every need. I only had one issue, and that was the one regarding people actively soliciting people to
*leave*. If that's not happening, I don't care about anything else. Sheesh.... my last comment was on the fact that in reading the posts, it seems a few are on the verge of wearing out their welcome already - and I'm not basing that on the post about the rules, I'm basing it on reading the posts.

I don't know how much more clearly I can state that other than things done deceitfully, I don't have a single bit of problem with what anyone does regarding this.

Hold up there, sport. I haven't posted a single thing on that website. I don't even know what you're talking about, but I'll go look at it and see if I can figure out what your problem is.

Let me make this clear to you, Jack. I'm *glad* they found another forum to post in. For the FOURTH TIME - I don't care who posts there. I responded to the idea that people were working in the background collecting email addresses from here to contact people in an effort to get them to *leave* here to go there. That is dirty. Since that time, it has come out that there may not be any evidence of that. So, no problem.

Not until you post a broadfaced lie about me, that is. Again - I have *not* posted one single post in that forum. I'm not even registered, and have no desire to.

With all due respect, Larry, I think you might want to read the posts there a bit more carefully. What you're witnessing is a bunch of people trying to get to know each other over there in a civil and pleasant manner.

I think it's kind of interesting to watch, myself. I predict good things -- they seem, you know, *balanced!*

Anyway, everything is above board, there's no "deceit," and there are no "ethical problems."
Anyone here is more than welcome to go over there and check it out, I suppose. Their equivalent of the CR is called "Anything But Pianos."

Frankly, the real threat to PW isn't private invitations for people to go post somewhere else.

The real threat to PW is threads like this, IMHO. At times, it feels like those who profess to love this place the most are the biggest threats to its survival . . .

And another thing - that is a bare assed lie, Jack. Other than deleting a few posts to copy your wife's vile filth in, I have never edited any of my posts. I had my reasons, you aren't able to grasp it, but that does not constitute a "well established reputation" for squat, slick.
