Harry,

Keep posting.  I've bought a number of items which I first saw in one of your lists, I didn't know about it, so researched it and thought I'd try it.  E.g. I "discovered" Krenek this way.  Which was certainly a positive.  So please carry on.  It's working for me.

Thanks, then I will certainly do that! :)

I have a great idea! In order to preserve Rob's bandwidth, why don't we all simply stop posting anything at all on GMG? That way he can simply pull down the dead forum and keep his hard earned cash. What do you say? And no, you don't even need to answer! Simply stop posting here and never return again if you agree (remember - just reading the forum takes up bandwidth too!). Hooray, we're all saved! I'm sure Rob will be so grateful - he surely must be annoyed out of his wits with all those people posting on GMG, while they could be out in the sun, getting a real life.

You can't fool me, Maciek:  you're being ironic, aren't you?

Well, if I told you I was it would become explicit so it wouldn't be irony anymore.

So I'm going to keep you guessing... ;)

I feel that the opinion is mixed!
I have a straight question, and please honour me with a straight answer.
Do you wish me to post the images or not?
If not, I will stop doing that from now on.

   Of course you should keep posting the images Harry  :) !!!

People who don't like your cover parade can simply not look at that thread, that's what I do.  Anyone that sends you angry pm's about this trivial issue you should ignore because they must not be right in the head, to get so bent out of shape about something that they can easily ignore.

No, you should not. It's tacky.

I would be interested in your insights into music, but not in a record of your acquisitions.

I bet Larry doesn't care what we're listening to either. ;)

Not enormously, unless you have something interesting to say about what you're listening. Lists of things you've bought, lists of your ten favorite triangle players or your fifteen and 1/2 favorite symphonies written between 1847 and 1852, lists of what is on your CD player right now - these things interest me very little if at all.

And, you know, you may have a point.

Listings as such are not that interesting. Although I occasionally see things on the Purchases thread I didn't know the existence of and catch my eye.
But these posts provide an opportunity for further personal exchange: why did you choose that recording?, how do you like it?, where did you get it?, what other recordings do you know of the work?, etc. etc. And I'm interested in what music/recordings occupies some posters I have personal contact with.

And is it tacky? Well, if one assumes that people are posting their purchases just to show off, it would be.

I was wondering why than you visit this forum, if only slightly interested in what we have to say, let alone which things we buy!

Some folks just don't care for list making.  That's the way it is on 22 May.
