That's true and it's perhaps the principal reason for why a sudden outburst of moderating activity might seem unwarranted to some of us.  :D

Yes I expect that’s true. I hope they weren’t overreacting. Perhaps whatever they were reacting to has been deleated.

Several folk have wondered about MI, I gather he has discovered a sudden enthusiasm for rock music which he feels altogether pushes his long term classical interests aside. He may well return when he again feels the need for he former pleasures and his friends here. I never have grasped why people repeatedly leave formally then rejoin. Unless there is some terrific bust up, rare, just stop posting for a while and pop back as and when. I have raised my eyebrows at some members who after years here, threw in the towel because they had access problems for a week.

I am not happy that the site search engine has disappeared, though it never has liked Berlioz damn it, but the inability of new people or returning folk to register is the real big problem. I hope that Rob lets us know soon what is or is not going on. So folks, do think about the impulse to leave as, for the moment, there is no way back.

Anyone want a recommendation of a Pergolesi Stabat Mater that I discovered for myself recently, let me know.

It hasn't. It's there and it's functional.

Ah, it is working now, news to me. Last I knew was we were to use Google. Thanks.

If Rob has left us for ever, is there anything that we can do to create a mirror of the site, or indeed to take it over?

If the worst comes to the worst, Talk Classical offers similar functionality, you can post text, images and videos, which in fact is really all I need, though for some reason I find this website more congenial, maybe because it's more "peaceful." But for those looking for friendly banter about music in a listening thread, which I guess is what many people are here for, it's not the same ambience at all.

Rob’s movements have often meen a bit mysterious. He has been unavailable for extended periords in the past when he has been on medical missions in remote places.

Apologies, I meant Vivaldi Stabat Mater. I will shove it on when I get a chance.

Yeah, he was on last night. I didn't send him a PM because I imagine he's been inundated, and there's nothing unique that I could ask/add in any case.
"You overestimate my power of attraction," he told her. "No, I don't," she replied sharply, "and neither do you".

Was it just a flying visit, or did anyone communicate with Rob?

I'm not missing, but I will be gone after this posting. 

Participation rates in the games I run have been declining for a few weeks now.  I expected this to happen, but I also expected that there would be some new members to join in.  Unfortunately, new membership doesn't happen here.

For those interested, there are currently 2 unfinished games.  Everything needed to continue both games is housed in the applicable selection threads so.......continue if you like.

Sammy, I imagine that the new membership issue will be sorted out at some point. Until then, as a member of six years standing, surely you could enter into discussions with the folk here. I hope that because people are not flocking to your games that you take that as a personal rejection. There are other ways to enjoy the site.

Was concerned that Scion 7 had disappeared but was then reassured that he had been active not long ago.

Karlo (North Star) has been absent for some time now. Anyone heard from him recently?

Jo498 hasn't been here since April 22. One of my favorite posters, if I have such a thing. Hopefully, he got a life and that's all. :-\
